Apple Butter Recipe

Ingredients: 1 jar of sweetened or unsweetened apple sauce (21 oz) and 2 tbsp pumpkin pie spice.

Instructions: In tall pot combine all ingredients. Bring to a medium boil and reduce temp to medium. Using a silicone spatula stir mixture every couple minutes so bottom doesn't burn.

It will sputter in the beginning while the water evaporates, consider using a lid in between stirs. Continue to heat mixture for about 30 minutes. You'll know the apple butter is done when you drag a spatula across the bottom and the sauce doesn't immediately fill in.

Take off heat and store in sealed container for up to 3 weeks.
