I have only had Apple Butter once or twice (Commercial) and wasn't wowed by it. I was gifted with a little over 1/2 bushel of apples and went scrambling for things to make with them. I have to say that this recipe is the BOMB! I made it exactly as directed and at the end used a stick blender to make it smooth. I licked the spoon then sat down with the crock pot and a rubber spatula and ate every little bit of the remains in the crock pot. Crusty bits too. :) Sweet but not too sweet - this is THE perfect recipe for Apple Butter!! Thanks for sharing your Grandmother's recipe with us.
