What apple is best to make apple butter?
I use Jonagolds or any type sweet apple therefore I don't have to use but a little sugar. I only used 1 cup of sugar to 16 cups of sauce and it was plenty sweet. My recipe is:
Put ingredients in a roaster and bake at 350 degrees F until thick stirring every half hour. Put in sterilized pint jars and process by water bath. Makes 5-6 pints. When I give this for gifts everyone raves at the flavor. (10/21/2009)
It's easier to use canned apple sauce instead of apples. And it's probably cheaper also. (10/21/2009)
