Who doesn't like apples?
Fall is the time when the apple orchards are full, but in case you have missed out on gathering apples this year, or don't live in an area where fresh apples are grown, and would like that good old fashioned apple butter taste for your breakfast toast... here's a super easy method for creating it.
Crock Pot Apple Butter
1 gallon can apple sauce
Put applesauce into crock pot and cook on high until the applesauce liquid begins to rise to the top of the crock. You can spoon off the liquid that rises and continue doing this until the liquid stops rising to the top of the crock pot.
Next add in the following ingredients:
9 ozs. honey (use measuring cup)
2 Tsp plus 1/2 Tbs cinnamon
1 1/2 Tsp Allspice
1 1/2 Tsp plus 1/8th Tsp Red Hots
Continue cooking until everything blends together. This process takes about 11-12 hours but is worth it.So wake up early to start this one.
Makes 4 1/2 pint jars.
