16 medium apples (about 4 pounds)
4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves

Directions:
Directions:
To prepare pulp: Wash apples; remove stem and blossom ends; do not peel or core. Cut apples into small pieces. Add 2 cups water; cover; simmer until apples are soft. Press through a sieve or food mill. Measure 2 quarts apple pulp.
To prepare butter: Combine apple pulp, sugar and spices in a large saucepot. Cook slowly until thick enough to round up on a spoon. As pulp thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. (If too thick, add a small amount of water or apple juice for desired consistency.) Ladle hot butter into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace. Adjust two-piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.
