This apple butter would have been too sweet with the allotted amount of sugar, just as the other users suggested, but I love cinnamon, so I kept that the same. I only added about a third of the sugar that the recipe suggested. It tasted like it had the right amount of sweetness to me (I like tart stuff), but it never thickened up like it should have. It was still delicious - I ate it kind of like applesauce, but it was much richer and more decadent. Maybe next time I will add some cornstarch for thickening, or maybe I should have cooked it longer? I don't know what I will do next time, I just know I liked the taste, and I will experiment to see if I can thicken it up while still keeping it less sweet. This recipe, however, is a good starting point, and a great idea for using excess apples.
