Yea, that’s right, I’m still obsessing over the changing of the leaves and the cool crisp air. I just can’t help myself. Around this time of year, everyone goes apple picking, but what do you do with tons and tons of apples you ask? You make Apple Butter! I’ve always enjoyed the stuff around this time a year, but who knew it was so easy to make!
A big thanks to HEYMISSPICKLE for reminding me that Apple Butter exists!
Here’s what you’ll need:
3 lbs of apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
3 tbs honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp all spice
Throw all of your sliced apples into your crock pot and set it on low. Combine your dry ingredients and pour them over the apples, add your honey, and mix it all together.
Let that baby cook for 12 hours, make sure you check on it, stir it occasionally, and mush up the apples as they cook.
I stored mine in mason jars and then canned them, but if your not into the difficult process then just freeze them or store them in your fridge!
Its a perfect gift, I sent one to Sandra my lovely pen pal.
Now this stuff is so good, but I can only eat bagels and toast so many times…so what else can I do with apple butter? I came up with this little treat and Marli loved it!
Just unroll a package of crescent rolls and spread apple butter on them. Roll them and cook following the package directions. Simple and yummy for breakfast!
And now here’s a little insta-lately update!
