Grandma's Apple Butter

 My Grandma Queen is on my mind and is always in my heart. I am going to share her recipe of Apple Butter. This is one of the things that she made that I adored. She made the best biscuits to go with the Apple Butter! She also made a variation with cinnamon heart candy, but I can't find that written down anywhere.( Which I loved the very best)
  •                Apple Butter

    5 lbs Granny Smith Apples, cored and peeled

    3 cups water

    3 cups white sugar

    3 cups brown sugar, packed
