Ingredients
  Rome apples 4 Pound
  Granny smith apples 4 1⁄2 Pound
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
  Cloves 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Wash apples and cut into pieces; combine with water in a large covered sauce pot.
Cook until soft, about 30 minutes.
Press through a food mill; measure 12 cups apple pulp; and return to sauce pot.
Heat 2 cups sugar in a saucepan, stirring until sugar melts and turns a rich golden brown.
Carefully pour into apple pulp.
Sugar will crackle and harden.
Add remaining 2 cups of sugar and spices.
Cook, uncovered, about 1 hour or until apple butter thickens, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
Stir in lemon juice.
Pour hot into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space.
