We make our own apple butter as well....but I agree, store bought is sometimes really bad.

We just chop up apples and throw them in a crock pot with a cinnamon stick and cook it down...and down some more....and down more....until it is far more thick than apple sauce and has a brown color to it. Then we add whatever other spices we want - usually just nutmeg and a little ginger.

My mom adds brown sugar to hers, but I prefer it without any added sugar.

it's so good mixed in with plain yogurt. I like plain yogurt with shredded apple, a little apple butter and almonds or pecans........mmmmmm....
