After visiting an Amish restaurant recently, I was anxious to find a good recipe for apple butter. This one was excellent and everyone loved it. I did add 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves, but otherwise followed the recipe. I used Ida-Red apples, because I read that they are the best apples for this use. Jane
