"Each year for the past 4-5 years I turn to this recipe; I have tweaked my review a few times and given additional hints. This year I want to add that I use apple juice with good results instead of ci..." See moreder. I have always added 2 tsp. of cinnamon, and 1 tsp. allspice for richer flavor. If you use orchard apples, they tend to be juicier, so I add a few extra apples to make it pulpier. Jonathan apples work well with this recipe. I also use a small hand held blender to break up the chunks, but if you prefer chunkier, leave it alone. In reference to the other reviewer who noted how thin this apple butter seems. It does simmer and reduce down but will still appear somewhat apple-saucy while it is hot. As this apple butter cools overnight, it does thicken and set on toast nicely. Still a recipe I grab each September to fix and freeze for the winter months. My kids ask for this every year."
"Getting rave reviews from my family! I did follow the suggestion of another review and added 2 extra cups of apples and 2 tsp of cinnamon. My grandfather, who is very particular about his apple butt..." See moreer, enjoy it! YUMMY!"
"4 stars because after 2.5 hours of simmering I still had a applesauce consistency, so I reccomend reducing the apple cider down to 2-3 cups. Also not 5 stars because it would have been very bland, ex..." See morecept I used the spice measurements that the other review recommended. Once those spices were added, the flavor is great. Regardless of how thick it is, I either have the BEST applesauce I've ever tasted, or tasty (but runny) apple butter. Thanks for sharing and getting me started on something great!"
