First, let me say that 6 people thought the taste was awesome, but I did cut the sugar in half because of other reviews. I've never tasted apple butter before so there was no long-lost family recipe I was trying to duplicate. Some people had apple butter before and claimed this was much better. I totally destroyed it, but it was totally my fault. Here are my mistakes. I only used 2 1/4 lbs of apples. It looks like more than enough when it first goes in the slow-cooker, but no. I took a nap and even on low, I burned it beyond redemption. There was enough left in the center taste-test after only 5 hours. So next time, I'll use the full amount of apples if using the slow cooker. And there will be a next time. Judging by the comments of others who tasted, I think the cloves might add the extra something special in this recipe. Only 4 stars because of personal preference for less sugar.
