Baked Apple Butter

Home | Recipes | B
Jams & jell Preserves


  • 12 lb Jonathon apples; or another tart red variety
  • 3 qt Water or apple juice approximately; (just cover apples)
  • 1 c Brown sugar or honey
  • 2 Oranges; juiced
  • 2 tb Cinnamon
  • 2 Lemons; juiced
  • 1/2 ts Salt


Heat oven to 350F. Peel, core and cut apples into quarters. Place in large baking pan or oven kettle. Cover apples with water, apple juice or any combination of the two. Cover and bake for about 1 1/2 hours. Uncover, add cinnamon, brown sugar and salt and mash with a potato masher, then stir well. Cover and bake again for about 4 hours, stirring about every hour until mixture is reduced, brown and thick. This is all relative to your baking vessel. For my heavy copper kettle it takes all day. Prepare hot sterile jars. Stir in orange and lime juice and add more sugar if desired. Put into jars and seal.
