I can't really rate it yet because it's cooking and only has been for about 2 1/2 hours! -But I had to in order to post this review. I had to triple the recipe because I need about 15pints. I cut the amount of sugar in half because I used a mixture of Granny Smith, Gala, and Red Delicious, and the latter two are very sweet, and most reviewers said the given amount of sugar was way too much. I can always add it in the morning if necessary. I used allspice instead of cloves, bc that's what I had, and I'm cooking all 15lbs of it in an 8qt crockpot. I also added about 1/4 cup of apple cider to add a little more Apple flavor. I'm making this for the first time ever as Thanksgiving treats for my boyfriends family and I'm praying it all turns out okay!!! (I'm worried about not getting the right consistency, and it being too sweet) but I'm reading that I can continue to cook it down or transfer it to the stove to reduce it. I'm not sure how I could reduce the sweetness unless I got a ton of tart apples and cooked them down and added them.
