"This is the first recipe I ever used to can apple butter. Recipe starts out with applesauce, great for any time of year. It was my first time canning and it turned out great! This would make great Christmas gifts. I gave a lot of mine away earlier this year and everybody loved it. Their only complaint: put it into bigger jars! This recipe make a dark, spicy, and sweet apple butter. Makes a great sandwich with PB. Note: 3 quarts is equal to 12 cups or 96 ounces applesauce."

"Because so many of the reviews commented about how sweet this turned out, I only used half the amount of sugar called for and my end result is perfect for me. This is easy and delicious and I plan to make more and use it for Christmas gifts."
"i have made this for my mom who had dementia for the last three years. It was so easy and always turned out so nice. we used this to mash moms pills up and put them in applebutter and she never refused to take her medicine."
"Very easy and yummy, I'll definitely be making this again next year. I used homemade applesauce made from Wolf River apples, which are pretty tart, so used the full amount of sugar called for. I also put the spices in right away at the beginning of cooking. Makes 5-6 pints, depending on how thick you cook it down."
"my parents felt this was made the old fashion way. so easy to make and can"
"Very easy to make. Needed more seasoning and less sugar. Will defiantly make again!"
"Very easy and tastes great! My only problem was keeping people from eating it out of the crockpot while it was cooking. Made the house smell great! We've had it on toast so far and it's wonderful."
"Was very good , used as presents, all liked it. Will make again, very easy."
"This was so easy to make,I made it for my holiday baskets and everyone loved it!I didn't change a thing and it was wonderful with the banana bread."
"Easy to make and very tasty. Enjoyed by all tasters. This is definitely very, very sweet. I would add even more spices next time."
"This is the first time we have made apple butter.This is the recipe my wife wanted to try. started last night and just finished a few minutes ago. Time will tell how it came out but from sampling it tastes great. We had to tweak the recipe a bit. Ran out of nutmeg so we used pumpkin spice. Thank you so much for the recipe."
"Yes, this was easy to make but in my opinion, it is waaaay too sweet! Next time I will cut the sugar. This time I added some lemon juice drops AND some apple cider vinegar to cut the sweetness"
