We make this, can it in mason jars and give as Christmas gifts. Always a hit!

Thanks for sharing! This sounds delicious! I will definitely have to try it sometime! My mother has large apple trees and has always canned apples and made apple butter. I have never done it myself though. I will try this recipe and also share it with my mom! It may be different than what she uses.
Thanks again for sharing! :)

Thanks for this! I was just telling my boyfriend today how I am craving apple butter. His aunt is into canning and she made the best apple butter ever. I became hooked on apple butter and peanut butter sandwiches. To die for! Will make this over the weekend. Yum!
