      The taste was good but not caramel-y like I expected. The texture and thickness was very nice. It was time consuming when it only made 4 eight ounce jars. So I will be making another batch this afternoon and will double the apples, sugar and spices and add 4 times the caramels.

      This is actually the 4th time I've made this apple butter. It is fantastic! I gave it to all my coworkers in our OB Department for Christmas last year, and when I said I was going to make it again this year I was asked to use bigger jars! It does make only half as much as stated, but the taste is worth it! The only change I made was to add twice the cinnamon. It is soooo good on toasted whole wheat bagels! My husband uses it as an ice cream topper! Each time I use the recipe, I have 2 pans (each with a tripple recipe) cooking at the same time so I can make enough to last throughout the year--it stores well in my pantry which is cool and dark!
