My son just loves apple butter, so I wanted to find a recipe that I could make, that he would like. I found many recipes, but none of them really appealed to me, so I took the parts of each that I liked and formed my own recipe out of a few different varieties. I use crisp, juicy, red delicious apples because I like the flavor. Substitute your favorite apple to get the flavor you enjoy.
