- 10 c. cooked (don't add water),
blended Jonathan apples
(approx. 1/4 bushel)
- 5 c. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cloves
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix all of the above and cook in crock pot on low for 10-12 hours. (Cook overnight and wake up to a wonderful smell!) Then uncover and cook an additional 2-4 hours on high until apple butter is thick. Pour into hot canning jars leaving 1/4 inch head space and seal or pour into jar and simply refrigerate. Yields about 4 1/2 pints.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
