Prepare water bath; to a large canning pot add enough water to cover jars by 1-inch. Bring water to a boil. Remove lids and rings from jars. Add lids to a small saucepan with 1-inch of water, bring to a simmer. Sanitize jars by boiling for 10 minutes or by running through the dishwasher. Set aside a clean dishtowel on the counter.
Fill jars with apple butter, leaving 1/2-inch of head room. Cover with lids and rings. Carefully lower into boiling water. Cook for 10 minutes. Carefully remove to dishtowel. Let jars rest undisturbed for 12-24 hours. Listen for the jar lids to pop. If they have not sealed after the allotted time, store in the refrigerator and use within two weeks. Sealed jars may be stored in a dark location for up to 1 year.
