 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      quarts        Unsweetened Applesauce
    2      pounds        Granulated Sugar
    1      pound         Brown Sugar
      3/4  cup           Apple Cider
                         -----SPICES-----
      1/2  teaspoon      Nutmeg
      1/4  teaspoon      Allspice
      3/4  teaspoon      Cloves
    3      teaspoons     Cinnamon
 
 The thicker skinned, late Summer and Fall apples produce a grainier texture
 that’s best for applesauce.
 Stir applesauce, sugars, and cider together and cook in a slow oven (325 deg F.)
 for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.  Add spices. Return to oven and cook 1 hour
 more. Apple butter requires long, slow cooking.
 (Can also be made in a crockpot.)
