packed brown sugar
distilled white vinegar
This is the best tasting applebutter I have ever tasted! I usually make up a big batch of this and place in canning jars for the perfect christmas gifts!
This is good for a quick recipe for gift giving but nothing can beat the old fashioned way for
apple butter by cooking the apples for a long time.
Very easy and worth the wait it takes to cook. Keeps well too. Lite alternative to butter or cream cheese, and not like jelly at all!
I don't know what apple butter is supposed to taste, for I've never had it before, but this surely is a good healthy spread. What is more, it only takes minutes to prepare. I'm sure the ones made in a slow cooker would taste even better, but I don't have one, and this is a great alternative. Gotta give it a try. P.S.: I stirred it every 30 minutes while baking, but next time, I'll do it every 45-60 minutes.
No, it doesn't taste like homemade, but with the main ingredient being a conveniece product, I didn't expect it to. That stated, this is absolutely delicious!! Ten stars! My whole family (including 9-yr-old Mr Finicky) loved it! I was trying to use up a large amount of leftover applesauce. Looks like I need to go get more now. Simple to prepare, no exotic ingredients, easy to store, yummy to eat - perfect!! Oh, and I took the advice of a previous reviewer and stirred every 45 mins.
WOW! This is really, really good and so easy! I didn't change a thing except I cooked it uncovered in my slow cooker (on high). Made the house smell amazing! I may never buy apple butter again.
I made this with my daughter's preschool class. Loved the fact that you baked it. I cooked down red delicious apples for it. I doubled the apple portion of the recipe and it seened like I should have cut down on the vinegar. Great recipe though. Teh house smelt great while it was cooking and had a great color when it was done.
I omitted the cloves as I didn't have them. I also didn't have vinegar, so I used bottled lemon juice instead. Definitely need to cut down on the sugar by at least 3/4 of a cup, but otherwise nearly perfect. You can tell the texture is a little 'off' from your normally smooth apple butter, but the taste is beyond amazing. I jarred and froze some for later. Thanks!
