Replied to Spiced Apple Butter

Apples are high in pectin and acid. If you look at other apple butter recipes, like in Better Homes and Garden, calls for cider vinegar OR apple juice, then 5 minute water bath. This recipe is safe if you water bath 5 minutes.

I am going to make this recipe for gifts. The processing time should be 5 mins. According to Kerr home canning book, boiling water bath is preferable for processing fruits and tomatoes as they are acid foods and can be canned safely at boiling temps.
