My wife and I made this... Three quarts... It was gone within two weeks.ibelieve I ate a whole quart, myself... Wow it was good. Good on cornbread muffins too. Just like at Cracker Barrel
Best Apple Butter recipe yet! I've been making Apple Butter for the over 30 years, and this is superb. I have submitted a correcting on the simmering time. I think the author meant 11-1/2 hrs., not 11/2 hrs. In fact I simmer mine for 2-3 days, the longer the better. 1 - 1/2 hrs. is NO time for it to cook down, it takes days.
AWESOME RECIPE!!! It tastes incredible....I let it simmer a little longer than recipe called for...but I did not have any problem with it becoming thick (as previous 2 reviews). I give this recipe two thumbs up! THANKS SO MUCH Zwerg!!!
I have to agree with SarahG, It took way longer to thicken up, I was in the kitchen wit it for about 5 hours. Not a big deal as it's ssaturday, but the time is very miss leading. As for flavor....WOW it's wonderful and I think once it cools and sets up it will be well worth the time it took me to cook it!
Well, I'm a little disappointed in this. I followed the recipe exactly, "cook uncovered, over very low heat 1 1/2 hours or till very thick" but I cooked mine for at least 4 hours and it never got any thicker than it began. I don't know why. I'm going to open up all my cans and try to re-heat it and get it to reduce more, but I'm not sure it'll work. I'll post a reply to this review after I try it. ------------------------------------------ Okay, I got it to reduce, finally. I took a suggestion from the community help page and put it in a glass baking pan and baked it for a long time, stirring every 15 minutes. I think it helped that there was more surface space. However, overall, I don't think this recipe was very good because it was misleading in saying it would only need to cook for 1 1/2 hours. Next time I will try another recipe.
My kids can not stop eating this. The first day my picky 6 year old ate 5 pieces of toast with this apple butter. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making this again.
Tastes great, smells great, looks great!
This apple butter is so good! I just opened a jar that I canned about a week ago, and the flavor is outstanding. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe
