1 1/2 cups apple juice concentrate or 6 cups apple juice 1/2 teasp. allspice
2 tablsp. cinnamon 1/2 teasp. salt
6 cups thick unsweetened applesauce
Cook concentrate or juice with spices and salt until there is about 3/4 cup of liquid left in the pan.  Add applesauce and cook slowly, stirring often.  From time to time, put a teaspoon of the mixture on a cold saucer.   The apple butter is done when no liquid runs from it.  It won't take long because the cooking down is done before the applesauce is added.
