I did my first batch as a test batch and it was really small in case it didn't turn out. So, if you'd like more than 8 oz. of apple butter in the end, you should make a quadruple or so batch of this. :)
4 apples, peeled (Sweeter apples like Braeburn, Gala, Fuji, Delicious...I used braeburns)
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. water
1 T. lemon juice
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
What you'll need:
Pot to make apple butter in.
Canning supplies (Canner, funnel, tongs, rack (optional))
1. Core and then cut up the peeled apples into small pieces. Put the pieces into a pan and also put the cores in the pan. (We all know that apples have a lot of pectin in them, and rumor has it that a lot of that pectin is in the core.)
6. Once it's all been strained place it back in the pot on medium-high. Then add the sugar and cinnamon, stirring until it comes to a boil for one minute.
7. Then place in clean jars, with lids and bands. Water Process for 10 minutes at sea level and adjust for higher elevations.
