Apple Butter

Hope this Fall brings some beautiful apples your way! This apple butter is great on toast or fresh biscuits and super on oatmeal!

Apple Butter Recipe (from Michelle Doyle, originally from her mom, Rosemary Vorih)

8 cups apples -cooked, pureed, apples (think applesauce, I use a Foley Food Mill to make mine)
3 cups sugar (okay, mom's recipe actually called for 6 cups)
2 teaspoons each: cloves, allspice, nutmeg
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Add everything together, stir well, cook on low (!) until thick. (I use a crock pot on low setting for 8 hours and if that is not enough, do it again). If cooking on the stovetop, be careful of the bottom of the apple butter scorching. Pour into clean, scalded jam jars, top with new lids, seal.
