I make several batches of this simple and delicious apple butter to freeze in jars. Depending on the sweetness of the apples used, you can adjust the sugar to taste. —Betty Ruenholl, Syracuse, Nebraska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 28, 2014

"I've never made apple butter before but this was easy to do and delicious. It was a lot of work, peeling and chopping apples, but it wasn't hard. The results were delicious! I may try with 3 cups of sugar next time, since it is VERY sweet."

"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!!!"
