  1. I omitted the cloves as I didn't have them. I also didn't have vinegar so I used bottled lemon juice instead. Definitely need to cut down on the sugar by at least 3/4 of a cup but otherwise nearly perfect. You can tell the texture is a little 'off' from your normally smooth apple butter - Read more ...
  2. My husband loved this recipe. I will be making another batch today. I did make some changes. I use less sweetener and I also used 1/2 splenda brown sugar and 1/2 regular brown sugar.

  8. Very easy and worth the wait it takes to cook. Keeps well too. Lite alternative to butter or cream cheese and not like jelly at all!
  9. Great recipe. Very easy. My son won a blue ribbon last year when he used it for a 4-H project.
