This recipe is a good base, but it could use some 'tweaking.' I've been making applesauce on the stove & apple butter in my crockpot for years & I always add apple cider or juice, rather than water. For the sauce, I core Jonathan apples (best for baking & cooking), but I leave the peel on, cut them into chunks & saute them in butter before adding brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg & cider (all ingredients are based on the number of apples I use & taste preference), then boil them down until the apples are tender & the juice is 'syrupy.' For apple butter, I peel Jonathan apples, cut them into chunks, add brown sugar, spices & cider or juice & cook on low for at least 8-10 hours. Wonderful!!
