Apple Butter with no canning?

TripChick | Oct 20, 200801:30 PM     14

Forgive me if this topic has already been dealt with but my search did not come up with anything and I am desperate!

We went apple picking yesterday and came back with almost 100 lbs of apples. I am planning on making apple pies and applesauce and freezing them, but I'd like to make apple butter as well. The problem is, I don't know how to can and I'd like to try to find an apple butter recipe with doesn't involve canning. I was thinking of preparing apple butter and then freezing it at the end (as an alternative to canning), but I don't know how the end product would turn out.

Does anyone know if it is possible to make apple butter without involving the canning process? Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, fellow hounds!
