apples - peeled, cored and chopped
I'd make this again in a heartbeat! I did as the other suggested and used a quarter of the amount of allspice and cloves and half the amount of cinnamon. I made two batches (both tripled) and found the first batch to have way to much liquid so I added more apples the second time around. I still had to drain some of the liquid before pouring into my jars. I'd cut back a bit on the cider next time OR use more apples. I used a combination of Gala and Fuji apples and this recipe has a delicious flavor. My family and neighbors thank you!!! The honey is the perfect ingredient, so yummy!
This recipe is overall a good recipe, however the spices about blew me away. WAY too much cloves and allspice, I would suggest, as others have, to reduce to about 1/4 of the recommended amount. (Even less if you grind your own spices like I do.) I wish I had read those comments before I made it! It's edible, but a in small amounts, LOL!
I agree that the honey gives a it great flavor, though, and I will make this again with less cloves and allspice, of course.
Double the apples and cut the spices in half. Cook with the lid ajar to allow some of the steam off. Excellent flavor.
I thought this was pretty good. I used Golden Delicious because I had them left over and I used more than the recipe said, because of the reviews. I also used a little less liquid and should probably have cut it down by more (a cup instead of half a cup). I still had to strain it a little. I also used only half the spices and only 1/4 of a cup of honey and it is still very good, not overly spiced. I also simply used my hand mixer to blend the apples, which worked great.
I picked this recipe because I wanted to make a sugar-free apple butter. I used pancake syrup made with "Splenda" instead of honey. It worked great except it was a little too spicy. Next time I will cut down on the spices.
Everyone at my home loved this recipe and I plan to make it for Holiday gifts this year. It took a while to cook, but not long to cool in fridge. The review prior to mine is correct: I'd cut down on the spices next time around.
I like the flavor of the apple butter and I really like the fact that it doesn't use sugar. My only issue and the reason i gave four stars instead of five was that it is a little to thin. I think next time I make this I will use 2 cups of cider instead of three. Has a great flavor though and you would never know there isn't any sugar in it.
This is delicious!!! I followed other suggestions and used twice the apples and less spices. This is the best apple butter honey I have ever had and will taste great in other recipes.
