Golden Delicious apples - peeled, cored and sliced
apple cider vinegar
Went by the recipe & used tart apples.I did add the sugar in the last couple of hours of cooking which was done by taste.I think I used about half of what the recipe called for.Turned out GREAT husband & family loved it as well as my co workers.This one will be in my recipe box for years to come!!
Used granny smith apples I used half the sugar called for and it was still very sweet. Spices were great though. I'll try again with less sugar.
I thought the butter turned out really good. BUT! I only used 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and NO white sugar at all. I also used a natuarlly sweet apple- Matsu. I also left the lid off the slow cooker the last 2 1/2 hours of cooking, so it would thicken more. I just finished making it yesterday, it usually gets better when it sits for a week or 2(I canned it.)
First time I've made this recipe and it turned out perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants great apple butter. It makes a lot. I ended up with 2 16oz jars, 2 12oz jars and 6 8oz jars. The only thing I changed was the type of apples I used...I used Gala apples.
This recipe is absolutely excellent. The tart apples are a must!! It was easy and delicisious at the end. Defintley a must do!!
I got about 3-4 cups of actual apple butter wow it cooked down! I just left it on low for 20-22 hours then it was all done! So good!
I decided to make this as my first ever slow cooker recipe and cut the recipe down quite a bit. I only had 3 pounds of apples, so I reduced the remaining ingredients down so I was only making 1/4 of the original recipe. What happened - my apple butter burnt in the slow cooker during the second cooking cycle (10 hours on low). Any thoughts on why? Not enough liquid, not enough ingredients for the large cooker, etc.? Wondering if anyone else had the same type of experience thier first time out so I can figure out what I did wrong. Thank you!
I use 2 types of apples..and just white sugar. Cook time-start on high, get it bubbling, then turn to low, cooking over nite( with sugar), with lid cracked for vapor to escape. Done by moring. Process in hot water bath 10 min.
