“This is the apple butter recipe that I have been using for years. The apples are cooked with their skins on first so as to get the most flavor and nutrition from the apples.”

  3. Cook in a slow oven (275 degrees) for 8 hours stirring and scrapping sides of pan every ½ hour.

  5. Makes 12 6 oz glasses. Note: 1 peck equals...approximately 10-12 pounds, or 32 medium apples, or 3-4 9 inch pies, or 7-9 quarts frozen, or 4 quarts canned So, I'd guess 10-12 pounds.
