Grannie's Homemade Apple Butter - 'Very spicy apple with a warm buttery background.'
I don't think I've eaten actual apple butter. I've often wanted to try it but I only ever see large jars of it in stores and I end up not wanting to spend the money on something I don't know if I'll like. One thing I'm wondering now is, is apple butter really this spicy?? Wow, I was surprised just how spicy this scent was! Spice haters beware! This was still a great scent, but I just thought it was going to be something more mellow and warm. It started off like a typical cinnamon apple type scent. As it continued to warm though, the spice continued to bloom while the actual apple note settled more into the background. There was still some warmth and depth from the buttery background, making it quite a bit a different from that typical cinnamon apple scent in the end. A great fall scent, probably even good for around Christmas with all that cinnamon in there.
I melted these tarts (three in a pack) in my Glade 20 watt hot plate warmer and my tea light warmers and had quite strong scent throughout the house. It might be overpowering to those who are spice sensitive though.
