Jackie suggested selecting your favorite apples and using more than one variety for the best flavor. I used all Fuji and was very pleased with the results! Most anyone who likes apple butter will love this amazing homemade recipe...store bought just does not compare to it!
She advised that the yield was 3 to 4 half pints, but I actually got 5 half pints! I guess there could be a number of variables on the yield...perhaps the variety of apples you use, how thin your peel or how thorough you core your apples, or how long you cook them?
I'll be sure to double the recipe the next time in my larger slow cooker, so I'll have plenty for friends, family and me!
Autumn and Apples...
And Apple Butter!
