I just walked outside a few minutes ago and here in North Carolina its almost 1.30 A.M. here on the 17th of September and there is a slight chill in the air. Very soon it will be time to go to the mounatins and get apples for apple butter. Here I'm going to tell you that crock pot apple butter is so delicious.
You really should check out this delicious recipe for crock pot apple butter and make some for you and your family real soon. Let me tell you it is so very delicious and its easy to make.
Crock Pot Apple Butter
Makes a little more than 1 pint
1 dozen apples, peeled, cored, cubed
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon All Spice
Peel, Core, and Chop a dozen apples. I used apples from our trip to the Apple Orchard. I’m no apple expert, but these apples were more dense than the apples I typically buy in the grocery store. The flavor was great, but it took longer to break down in the Crock Pot.
Toss the apples in the sugar and spices.
Put everything in the Crockpot, then [say it with me] Set It On Med. , and Forget It!
I suppose it’s optional, but I decided to blend the butter down smooth. You can eat it right out of the Crockpot, I did. I just took a spoon to the Crockpot and dove in, it was divine. However, for the finished product I wanted it smoother and pulled out my blender since I don’t own an immersion blender. Then poured it into clean canning jars.
So after 15 hours and a dozen apples picked right from the tree, I had 1 pint of delicious apple butter. I froze half the batch and have the other half in the fridge just waiting to be eaten…maybe straight from the jar.
It really is so delicious on cinnamon raisin toast. You just have to try it.
