I can't help you with the sauce but this is what I have been using for my apple butter http://www.food.com/recipe/crock-pot...-butter-143307 My stepdaughter likes this recipe so much that she is using it for wedding favors.

I find it fits in my small crock pot really well and I double it for my big crock pot. I usually hit it with the immersion blender maybe half hour, forty five minutes before it's done.

talking about jalapeno jelly, I made watermelon/jalapeno jelly earlier this season. It is wonderful but not quite hot enough. I will try it again next year and use twice as many peppers. I think it only called for one or two. I really just combined a couple of recipes.

Just finished my apple butter and gave it a hot bath. I tasted it; don't even like jams or jellies particularly but it turned out perfect. I did adjust the recipe just a little: I added a tsp of almond extract. Now I want to make some more next week.

Asked my 2 granddaughters yesterday if they wanted any apple butter? I am making one more batch in a few days: Well, the one of them texted me and said: thanks Gma, but no one in our family really cares for apple butter. I just laughed, so did our daughter: why did we laugh? We are pretty sure no one in her family, has ever tasted it. How often do we go down the isle with jams and jellies, spot apple butter and say,"oh, just what I wanted to buy?" For many of us, it is a very old fashion spread. Our younger granddaughter said, sure bring it on. I am pretty sure she has no idea what it is either, but she is the type that will try anything once. Guess which granddaughter has kids that are good eaters?

Jim, good for you. We went to some friends last night for a couple of glasses of wine.They had the usual aray of snacks, including a jar of the salsa I had given her a few months ago when we made our years supply. She has always said she really liked ours, but people sometimes are just being nice. Well, let me say, each of us had a few chips with salsa and maybe some of her blue cheese dip. the rest of the pint she ate all by herself. I kid you not. Let me add, she isn't particularly heavy and I have rarely seen her eat much. I think this says: good salsa is something people really do enjoy.

Well after being in the refrigerator for a few days, I opened a jar of the prickly pear cactus jelly I made. It's um different. Not good different, not bad different, just different. I have five jars. I think I found my Christmas gifts for this year.
