Apple Butter Recipe

I still have a lot of apples to use up. Today, I’ll use them to make this apple butter recipe from my sister’s mother-in-law, Bev. The apple butter can be canned or frozen. I will be canning it.


  • 16 cups of applesauce
  • 8 cups of sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. of cloves (ground)


1. Mix all ingredients together in a large cooking pot (or roaster).


2. Place in a slow oven (250°F) and bake for several hours until desired consistency is achieved.


3. Stir periodically during baking.


4. Time to can or freeze.


FYI – Here are some detailed canning instructions.
Here is the canning set I use, since I have an electric stove top. It’s worked great for me so far.


I’d love to stay connected.
