This is amazing. I have made it without sugar and used a few sweeter apples and it was delicious! I love to put it on top of my morning oatmeal!
When my sister showed me this recipe, I thought it sounded terrible. Turmeric? Coriander? Yuck! But I made up a batch, I used cheep, very sweet apples (in season from the farm market,) so I cut down on the sugar. WOW! I still prefer "apple pie spiced" apple butter, But this is quite good, and makes a pleasant change. The rest of my family all adore this stuff. Gave a jar to the neighbor, and she wanted the recipe. It is a huge hit, and easy to make. I burnt the first batch a tiny bit, no one noticed but me. I have to say I thought my husband would hate this, but he loves it. If you are afraid of the turmeric and coriander overpowering the taste, don't be. The taste is interesting but not what you'd expect from reading the ingredients. One batch i had some extra apples so i added an extra quarter teaspoon of ground cinnamon and left the rest of the recipe alone. worked out perfectly.
Is this recipe suitable for water bath canning, or do I need to add acid?
