It's Beginning To Smell Alot Like Christmas...

Okay so if I could attach a scratch and sniff to the page I would so that everyone could experience the great aroma of the Apple Butter. Thanks to Charles and three sliced up fingers he managed to make it through the apples that we picked at David and Merrie's house. For the past 3 years or so we have made apple butter for the family for Christmas, so again this year everyone get ready for some good ol' apple butter. Here are some pictures and the recipe for our crock pot apple butter. Enjoy!

8 cups of apples (grated or blended in a food processor)

2 cups brown sugar

1/2 tsp allspice

1 tsp cinnamon

7 oz box of red hots optional (for Red Hot Cinnamon Apple Butter)

3 cups apple cider

Cook in crock pot until dark brown and most of the liquid is dissolved.

Can while apple butter is still boiling in the crockpot. Put on lids and turn upside down so the lids will seal. Store and eat on toast or on a peanut butter sandwich.
