Apple Pie Butter

Apple butter--one of my favorite things about fall.


  • 10 Macintosh apples and 3 Granny Smith apples (about 4 pounds), washed, cored, cut in wedges
  • 1 cup Apple Pie Cider
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, light or dark
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt


  1. Place apples, apple cider, and apple juice in a large, heavy-bottomed pot.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, uncovered. Cover, reduce to simmer, and cook until the apples are soft. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  3. Carefully puree the apple mixture in a food mill, blender, or food processor.
  4. Return to the pot, Stir in the sugars, lemon juice, and salt. Cook over simmer until the mixture is brown and thickened, stirring occasionally. When a spoon is dragged along the bottom of the pan, it should leave a clean path.
  5. Pour into jars, lid, and let cool. Store in the refrigerator.


If you don't have Apple Pie Cider or prefer your apple butter without spices or a different selection of spices, it's up to you. That's what makes it yours.
