If you want a Really good crab, try a Hewes Virginia crab.  One of the best apples I have ever eaten.  Really tasty.

  Thanks for the crabapple suggestions, Lucky. The fruits are elongated, ranging from 3/4" to 1 1/2" or even a little larger. Deep, deep reddish-purple. I have a pan of them cooked up, awaiting the food miill, and the whole thing is deep crimson. The tree itself is certainly fully grown, and unless it has been pruned carefully, it is not at all unkempt. After a little looking online, I think Dolgo is it. The applesauce is spectacular, and sweet enough to enjoy without sugar!

  Thanks again.

    Could be Dolgo - are they elongate or round? Seems like I saw in 
    print, somewhere, that 'Dolgo' is the Russian word for 'long', and 
    Dolgo's fruits are elongate rather than round.
    But, it could also be any number of other large-fruited ornamental crabs.
    'Callaway', a chance seedling that was selected from a group of 
    M.floribunda seedlings by an astute nurseryman at Callaway Gardens, 
    is a favorite for eating-out-of-hand in my family. Heavy bearer of 
    large clusters of 1-1.5" tasty little crabapples, often taking on an 
    unkempt semi-weeping character, due to the weight of its fruit 
    load. At one point in time, some folks lumped it into the 'edible 
    crab' category, but it's largely been relegated to 'ornamental' 
    status, despite the fruit quality. My kids and I fill our pockets 
    with Callaway fruits and munch away.

      As i was biking through our western PA university campus, I came to a
      screeching halt beneath what I took to be a large plum tree, littered
      thickly with beautiful, purply-red fruits. In fact, they are
      crabapples, but they taste like a tangy regular apple, and are the size
      of small plums. Any idea what this treasure is?

      Thanks.

    Join us in Kansas and you can get cheap pectin. You can also get a house for less than a million dollars :-)

    Naomi,

    Fruit butter is how I treat my excess fruit. I add some moisture with a
    bit of thawed-from-frozen apple juice concentrate from the store. I
    tend not to add any additional sugar after that. I slowly cook down the
    fruit and use it for adding to yogurt, ice cream, cottage cheese, baked
    goods as a way to keep them moist without a lot of oil and as a topping
    on toast.

    I have processed figs, apples, pears and blueberries this way.
    Delicious and very easy.

    The down side is that I believe that the finished mixture must be
    refrigerated or frozen. I do not can so I have not explored that
    route..

    Fruit butters can be canned, they usually just need 5-10 minutes in a
    boiling water bath; but you would need to use a recipe for canning to be
    certain you have enough sugar and acid.

    I have canned it. Apple butter is canned.. why not plum or peach butter? I
    use the Ball Book Apple butter directions.

    I am fond of Kansas, my grandfather's birthplace. 

    The way you get a house worth less than a million dollars here is buy it two
    years ago and wait until now. we're down about 60% from the ridiculous
    million-an-acre prices.
