To speed the cooking process, slice your apples very thin. The thinner you slice your apples the quicker they will soften.
When warming apples after pureeing, I like to cover with a lid as it will spit as it thickens. Be careful when checking on it. Keep on low heat so as not to burn it.
I’d recommend to eat this apple butter within in a month, and keep it in the fridge in a tightly sealed container. Unlike store bought brands, homemade apple butter doesn’t have any preservatives in it, which means its shelf life is shorter. However a month is not so bad!
You can also freeze your apple butter for longer storage. It will remain tasting fresh for about a year. Or, if you properly seal it in a sterile jar, it will last indefinitely.
