We are going to the apple orchard this weekend and I know I'll make an apple pie but after that I'm not sure what else to do with them...what do you do with apples? Does anyone have any recipes for apple preserves or apple butter? I've always wanted to try those.

 this may sound like a weird question but: is there butter in the apple butter? lol.  I was sooo looking forward to a buttery apple butter to put on biscuits and bagels. shrugging

No, there's no butter.  Apple butter is a spread used LIKE butter, to spread on bread or muffins....it can even be used to make a pie.  If you want a buttery flavor too, just spread butter on your toast before spreading the apple butter.
