Apple Butter

Wash, core and thinly slice apples into a large dishpan of water that has ½ cup of salt added. The salt will prevent the apples from turning dark. Drain off water and rinse before cooking. Cook apples in small amount of water over low heat until soft. Press through sieve.

Measure 16 cups thick applesauce, 1 cup vinegar, 8 cups sugar, 3 Tbsp. Cinnamon, 1 Tbsp. Cloves, 1 ½ tsp. Nutmeg, 1 ½ tsp. Allspice into a large pot. Combine all above ingredients in large pot. Cook on low heat until mixture is thickened. During cooking, stir often to prevent sticking. Cook until desired thickness. Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal.
