2 qt. sweet apple cider
3 qt. peeled and quartered cooking apples (about 4 lb.)
2 c. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
Bring cider to a boil in a large saucepan. Add apples. Bring to
a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, stirring often, until apples
are soft. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, stirring
often, until very little liquid separates from pulp, about 2 hours.
Makes about 2 pints apple butter.
