"The honey and brown sugar really gives the apple butter a little more depth then others I have tried. If you like a smoother apple butter, blend the apples once they are soft with a electric mixer. I like to use more then 1 variety of apples like Granny Smith and then something a little softer like fuji." — jodee

apples - peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
Can't say I can judge apple weight worth a darn. Loaded the crock-pot to what I thought was full. Apparently I was not paying attention (it's an "old thing")and mixed measurements for white & brown sugar, got them reversed. The only other change was 1/2 tsp nutmeg. The result was absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to the next batch as soon as I can find time!
Awesome and super delicious!!!
Wonderful! The honey isn't overpowering but adds a lovely note to the flavor. I used Fuji apples because they were the least expensive at Costco and raw organic wildflower honey. I also pureed them at the end instead of trying to mash them with a fork. Texture was perfect!
Just the recipe I was looking for!! Used three different type of apples but changed nothing else. I did puree it in a blender at the end of cooking to give it a smoother consistency. My husband is already asking when I am going to make it again!
This is THE BEST apple butter! The honey really makes it and I feel more nutritious than all sugar. Try it!
Perfect apple butter, and so easy! This was our first attempt at making apple butter and the results are fantastic. We sliced, peeled and cored the 5 1/2 lbs. of Golden Delicious apples (which completely filled my 6-quart crock pot)and then mixed the honey, sugars and spices exactly as listed in the recipe and put them on top. Cooked on high 1 hour as directed, then cooked on low for 10 hours. When it was done, I used a wire whisk for a couple of minutes to achieve a smooth consistency. It tastes amazing and was a hit with everyone in our family, adults and kids alike! Notes: We live at almost 6,000 ft. elevation, so it may take less time at lower elevations. Also, I took the lid off the crock pot as it cooled to prevent condensation from watering down the apple butter. We will definitely be making this again and again.
I made this recipe and everyone has loved it! I chose it because of the honey as we have bees and I wanted to try some of our honey in different recipes.
Used a variety of apples - wonderfuln
