Put the butter in the blender jar. Set timer for 15 minutes and temperature on Medium. Once butter has melted add ½ cup of the apples and ½ of the sugar. Cover and stir, using quick bursts to mix and break down the apples. Continue with remaining apples ½ cup at a time, waiting and allowing some liquid to accumulate from the cooking apples before adding the next batch. Stir between each addition 3 to 5 times. Once all apples are added (in about 10 minutes) stir using long pulses to achieve an even consistency. Once all ingredients are added and time expires, set timer for 30 minutes and temperature on Medium. Stir occasionally while the mixture is cooking. Serve warm or at room temperature.
