I made apple butter today
It was easy and fairly cheap to do so!

Mmm. I love apple butter! I got a great deal on apples a week ago and made a bunch of applesauce. Most of it's in the freezer. But I haven't done apple butter for a long time! I'll have to soon!

10 pounds of apples (peeled, cut, and diced)
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of white sugar
3 tsp of cinnamon
1.5 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp of ground cloves
1 cup of apple cider
1 cup of apple brandy
simmer apples with brandy and cider until super soft
process in a food processor in small batches
push the processed apples through a mesh strainer to get out any tough bits
add back to pan once it is all processed
add brown sugar and white sugar
mix on low until sugar is melted
simmer for 1 hour until thick
add to 1 pint jars and water can for 10 minutes or so

I made some too, just on a smaller scale! I buy dried apples at our local Adventist grocery store, so I use a half pound of them in the crock pot with enough water to cover them well. I let them cook on "low" pretty much all day, and add about a half a teaspoon of sugar and a dash of cinnamon. Yummy, easy, way cheaper than store-bought (and no HFCS...yay!!!).
Edited to add: This makes about a pint and a half, which we use in a couple of weeks, so no need to really "can" it. Good for a canning-ignorant person like me

~I make a batch of this every fall and can jars of it. It smells so fabulous when it's cooking down that we can't wait for it to cool so we can have some. I think it's best on fresh, homemade bread. Enjoy!~

I have made apple butter AND pumpkin butter in my crockpot. The only thing I would suggest is that people can it up in half-pints unless they are making it for use by a family of more than two. I am single and I can't eat up a pint of it before it gets moldy (fruit butters get moldy sooner than jams and jellies because of their much lover sugar content).

I've never tried apple butter...can someone explain to me what it tastes like? It sounds good, but I'm having trouble imagining the taste and especially the texture.
