Apple Butter is yet another item you can't find in Finland, so I figured out how to make my own. Makes the house smell amazing too!
5 1/2 pounds apples - peeled, cored and sorta chopped
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Peel, core and chop your apples. Don't worry too much about the chopping part because they will cook down and you can blitz them later with a hand mixer. Toss all the ingredients into a heavy pot or slow cooker. Cover and cook on medium high heat for the first hour. Then turn the heat down to low for 8 to 10 hours. Take the cover off, blitz until smooth and turn the heat back up to medium high for another hour or until most of the liquid is gone. Spoon into jars or freezable containers and pop in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
* Makes enough to fill 3 to 4 medium size jars.
