When it's time to "sauce" it I use a food mill held over my crock pot and keep grinding until it's full! The extra sauce goes into a glass bowl in the fridge to be eaten with granola : )!
Then, add about a cup of fresh apple cider and at least 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Stir and put the lid on. Then cook on the lowest setting for at least 10 hours. It's important to add the cider as this will keep it from getting too thick and burning. Right before it's done I take the lid off and let it evaporate off any extra liquid (normally 10 or 15 minutes). I know some people add sweetener, but I find the sweetness of the apples to be enough!
Apple Butter... it's that easy!
And because I just couldn't stop cooking with apples, we also made Maya's Grandma's Apple Cake... mmmmmm! What did you do (or eat?) this weekend?
