  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Remove blossom and stem ends from unpeeled apples. Core apples; cut into quarters. Place in 4-qt. saucepan. Add water and lemon juice; stir. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer 20 min. or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Pass mixture through food mill or strain mixture through coarse sieve, using wooden spoon to force apples through sieve; discard peels. Measure exactly 5 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Stir in cinnamon.
  • Stir sugar into prepared fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in pectin. Return to full rolling boil and boil 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Note

Use McIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Beacon or Granny Smith apples for best results.

    This was like apple jam with cinnamon, not really apple butter. I like the thick, spicy, tart apple butter that you cook all day in a crock pot or bake in the oven for hours. This wasn't even close to that. It was good apple jam, though.
