Homemade Apple Butter: Make Your Own Monday #4

I like to buy Polaner All-Fruit or Smuckers Simply Fruit Spreads.  They are pretty expensive, though.  I think I pay about $3.50 for a 10 ounce jar.  The alternative is to make an "all fruit" spread of some sort at home.  The easiest of all is Apple Butter.  There are two ways to make it.  One starts with applesauce and the other starts with dried apples.  I just happened to have a few bags of apples, bought for snacking, that no one was snacking on. 

 

You can use them just as they come out of the bag, or you  can snip them into smaller pieces with some kitchen shears.  Place them into a large saucepan.
