    I love apple butter. I haven't found any good stuff in over 30 years. My grandmother used to make it up until she passed in the early 80s.

    Woods don't grow well this far south so I make pear butter and pumpkin butter. Once I make it I do Process in a canner to make it shelf stable. Hadn't thought about it just covering would work. I may have to try out when making my pear butter this year just to see. I won't try that method with pumpkins though.

    We make apple butter and it will last at least 7 years (Never had any last longer than that) and we can as much as possible when the apples produce well. Last year was a great year. We canned 42 quarts last year from our tree. I cook it in the crock pot until it's ready, then into sterilized jars, lids, flipped over for 20 minutes and then turned upright until they pop sealed. Last many years that way. Not sure how long. It gets eaten to fast.
    We also do pumpkin but put it in the pressure cooker for safety. Planning on putting up cider this year if there are enough apples.
