This is my old Weight Watchers recipe - not sure what the carb count would be.

You could eliminate 48 carbs in the batch by subbing an equivalent amount of liquid Splenda though!

Char's Crockpot Sugarfree Applesauce

5 cups unsweetened applesauce (2 23 ounce jars)
2 cups pourable Splenda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed ginger (I buy it already crushed in jars, like crushed garlic)

Mix all ingredients together in a 3 quart crockpot. DO NOT COVER. Cook on High 5-6 hours, stirring occasionally. Let cool and refrigerate. Will keep several weeks. Can also be frozen.

I just made this last week. Really love it!

Apple Butter
16 c applesauce
7/8 c vinegar
4 tsp cinnamon
150 g Polydextrose
1 c erythritol
1/2 c xylitol,
3 c polydextrose
1/4 t stevia
2 pkts sweet one
Made 21 cups or 336 Tablespoons of Apple Butter

I combined the ingredients in a large Crockpot, and cooked till it thickened. (Actually, I cooked it with just the applesauce in the crockpot, lid on and on low, overnight) Then I turned it up, added the rest of the ingredients and stirred occasionally, till it thickened up like the regular sugar kind. I put it in jars, and pressure canned it for 10 min at 5# pressure. The sweetness is just right for me.

Zucchini "Apple" Butter

A few weeks ago I had a surplus of zucchini. I went online and found a great recipe for Zucchini "Apple" Butter.

Basically you chop up the zucchini into chunks and put it in the blender with a tablespoon of vinegar. You keep doing this until you have 4 cups of zucchini puree. To the puree you add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 2 drops of red food coloring, cinnamon and allspice to taste. The original recipe called for 2 cups of sugar but of course I use Splenda (around 3/4 cup, I don't like it too sweet). The recipie tells you to cook it in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally until the desired consistency is reached. I doubled the recipe and then put it in a crockpot overnight and then removed the lid the next morning and continued to cook it to make it thicker.

It tastes like apple butter with a lot fewer carbs.

Hmmmmm. "Normal" or traditional apple butter is VERY thick and sticky. What "brand" do you like that isn't? Curious.

The waldens farm apple butter is good, its light brown in color and so thick you can turn the spoon upside down and it wont fall off. It's thicker than jelly and a mroe solid type consistency. I liket he taste of it, it is a lighter taste than the jarred smuckers apple butter.

What is "normal" to me, I guess is the dark brown Smuckers apple butter in a jar. It is fairly thick nut not even half as thick as the Walden Farms.

Yummy, have you tried any of the Walden Farm fruit spreads? They taste good but are also very thick and almost a very firm jelly. Is this something like them? I tried to find it in a local store today but they didn't carry it, so will place an order with netrition. I also am going to try making some myself using the ideas here.

I have the waldens farm grape spread, and the marshmallow cream, but I havent opened it yet. It looks like it is the same thickness though as the grape spread though.

Here is a link to a bread I recently tried and it is good toasted. Thought the apple butter would be great on it. I made Shawneesiouxs version.
