I made easy homemade apple butter for Christmas gifts for a few people.
Here's the recipe if anyone wants it....
about 9 med apples (peeled, cored and quartered)
2 cups apple cider or apple juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
place apples and cider in 3 qt microwave safe dish and cook for about 15 min until apples are tender (stir twice while cooking). place in blender and puree until smooth. place back in dish and add sugar and spices and mix well. cook for 25-30 min until dark brown and thick (stirring once in the middle). the recipe says it makes 4 8oz jars but i got 5 out of it.
