I have been looking for this recipe for years. My grandmother made them and I didn't get the recipe before she past away. I was looking in one of her cookbooks, and there it was!!! They taste like the ones she made.

Yum... this is a terrific recipe. Like MF, my grandmother used to make it and I was able to get the recipe from an aunt after my grandmother's death. However, my grandmother used to add one cinnamon stick and 1 tbsp of whole cloves while mixture boiled... perfect for those cool autumn mornings!
So excited to have found this recipe! It is very good, and so simple! I made this as the recipe stated and the crabapples have enough flavor that it truly didn't need any spices, although that would be great too!
