"Just made this yesterday! Came out great! Had it on toast this morning and it is so delicious! Made little jars to give as gifts! I used a mix of Cortland and Macintosh apples. Will definitely make again!"
"I made this apple butter, and couldn't be more pleased. For the first batch I used Cortland and Jonathan apples. Really good. I used Cortland and Empire Apples for my second batch, and liked this mixture even better. Did reduce the sugar by half, as well as the cinnamon. Canned up 8 pints in a water bath. Husband and friends love it!!!"
"Waaaaaay too much sugar. Cooked for 2 days and still somewhat runny."
"Awesome, will try cooking overnight."
"This is so good and by cooking in a slow cooker, you can multi-task and still have some delicious apple butter. Taste so good on those cold winter mornings on toast or muffins."
