Apple Butter

Ingredients:
4 pounds Granny Smith or Macintosh apples, peeled, cored and quartered
1 cup water
1 cup apple cider
brown sugar to taste
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
grated rind and juice of 2 lemons

Directions:
Cook apples in the liquid until soft. Pass through a food mill or push through a fine mesh strainer and note how many cups you are getting. You do this so you can determine how much sugar you may/may not need. Add up to 1/2 cup brown sugar for each cup of puree — usually less.

Add spices, rind, and lemon juice and cook over very low heat until thick and dark brown. This may take 3 to 4 hours. If not to be used within a week or two, make sure to can or freeze.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
