Your readers have been great in helping in the past and now I have another, but simple request. My g'daughter loves home made apple butter. What I need is a good recipe and also what type of apples to use. So readers, please help me to show my g'daughter that G'ma did it again... coming through for her.

Lexy, I found this
Easy Apple Butter
3 lbs. Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored & finely chopped
1/2 c. apple cider
2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves

Place apples and apple cider in 2 1/2 quart microwave safe bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave on High 15 minutes. Carefully remove plastic wrap and stir in remaining ingredients. Transfer mixture to blender or food processor and process until smooth. Return to microwave-safe bowl and cook, uncovered 10 minutes longer, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes. Store in sealed jars.


An easier one was,
Easy Apple Butter:
8 c. applesauce (either commercially canned or that you make yourself)
5 c. sugar
1/2 c. vinegar
1/2 c. red cinnamon candies

Combine ingredients. Cook, stirring often (to prevent scorching) for 20-30 minutes or until thick.
