I made this apple butter using Golden Delicious apples. I peeled, cored, and sliced them, and ran them through the blender on a low setting to get a nice, smooth, applesauce texture. I started with 1 1/2 cups of sugar based on the rest of the reviews. Considering Golden Delicious are rather sweet, its sensible that some varieties of apples would need less sugar and others would need more for the right flavor. I also doubled the amount of ground cloves for a little more spice! I cooked mine in the crockpot overnight. I was not aware that my crockpot had "hot spots," but I found that out in the morning when the butter was burned to the sides in a few spots. If you know yours has burn spots, plan to be awake and able to stir the butter occasionally to prevent burning. If it does burn, though, just pour the butter out, and the burned portions will stick to the crockpot sides. You can clean it and go back to cooking the salvaged butter when you have finished. I was easily able to can this using a hot water bath. I loved this recipe and have wonderful apple butter in the middle of winter to share with family and friends. Thanks for sharing!
