I made this recipe and it's just wonderful! I did not go to all the work of peeling my apples tho, I washed them, cut them into quarters and then put them into my dutch oven, added about 1 cup of water and 2 T. of lemon juice, covered, and brought to a boil... turned them down and simmered or cooked slowly until apples were done. Then I ran them through my seive. I did not measure the weight of the apples, I just filled the crock pot up with apple sauce. After I had my applesauce, then I added Splenda blend and the spices. I added according to taste, a little more cinnamon, and about 2 cups of splenda blend. The sugar amount really depends on how tart your apples are, so if you have sweeter apples, don't add too much sugar or splenda! It also is a personal preference as to how sweet you like your apple butter. I"ve got my 2nd batch going now, been cooking all night. I put my first batch in 1/2 pint jars and boil water bath for 15 minutes. All sealed almost immediately after removing from canner. Great recipe, and sure nice not to have to worry about scorching it. Thanks so much, you've made my life MUCH EASIER!
