The Austin House Apple Butter Recipe
This is the same recipe that Mary Lynn developed to make her most delicious apple butters. The recipe I gave you in the first blog came from this. Your next batch can be made like the professionals.
5 – 6 quart crock-pot
12 cups of apples (sauce or processed with a food mill)
9 cups cane sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons allspice
3/4 teaspoon cloves
Mix all ingredients throughly before pouring into crock-pot
Cook 6 – 8 hours (varies by crock-pot)
Stir occasionally. If at the end of cooking time it seems too runny, cook 1 hour longer with the lid off.
