My grandma had a veritable plethora of crab apple trees, and her apple butter was usually all or mostly crabs. It was so good.

She who dies with the most toys, wins.

I just made some, or something like apple butter; and it came out great!
I just cut the apples in half, Ved out the core, tossed in a pot, add a little water, boiled for a hour or two, added cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg to taste, and eat!
The neat thing is you can use apples that no one else wants, and they taste great! I am trying another batch now that I will let boil down to carmelization. This is fun, and very thrifty!

One note about coring the apples: Apple seeds are poisonous, and contain cyanogenic acids. Eating a lot of them can make you seriously sick, so it is a good idea to cut out the cores!

Yes, Apple Seeds and Cherry Pits are Poisonous
