Apple butter is one of those quintessential recipes for me that evoke feelings of old-fashioned cooking, grandmothers cooking away over the stove, and perhaps skills lost in favor of modern cooking. But it does not need to be a forgotten thing. And I have to tell you. The difference between home made apple butter and that sludge you buy at the market is worlds apart. So gather up a peck or two of your favorite apples and give it a try. It cooks a long time, but really is simple.
