Apple Butter 3

Ingredients

4 lbs apples, cored and sliced (donít peel)
1 ⅓ cups packed brown sugar
1 cup apple cider
Grated zest and juice of one lemon
3 tbs grated ginger


Method

Combine apples, brown sugar, apple cider, zest and juice. Cover and cook 8-10 hours on low, until apples are very soft. (a good thing to do overnight!) Then stir in ginger, increase heat to high, uncover and cook (stirring now and then) until mixture is reduced to about 3 cups for 8 to 10 hours. Put the resulting mash through a food mill.
