It smells like Fall at my house!
I was playing around with an Apple Butter Recipe and it’s now perfected- and so easy. Apples, Spices and a Crock Pot- you are ready to go! I start my Apple Butter right before bed so when I wake up in the morning it’s ready for brunch- it just simmers on Low for 12 hours- this might scare you off- but do not be afraid- this is super delicious and reminds me of Thanksgiving.
Just follow the instructions below and Enjoy!
Choose your apples- 3 pounds. (I like Gala or Fujis.)
Peel, core, and chunk cut your apples and place them into your Crock Pot- set it to Low.
Mix your Spices:
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (I like to use dark but light will work also.)
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Clove
1/2 tsp. All Spice
Sprinkle of Ginger
Sprinkle of Nutmeg
Add your Spice Mix to your Apples (already in Crock Pot on Low) and give them a really good stir.
Add 1/2 Cup of Water- put the lid on- then walk away.
Occasionally check your Crock Pot and stir it up every couple of hours.
(Like I said- I start mine right before bed. I usually wake up throughout the night- kids and a dog will do that- so whenever I walk by I lift the lid, give it a stir, then go on my way.)
So 12 hours has passed and I scoop my what looks like chunky apple sauce into my Super-Blender until smooth. While my AB is smoothing I also add 6 TBSP of Sweet-N-Low because like everything else- I like sweet but not the calories, so it’s artificial sweetener here, use what you like and taste to your liking if needed. Pour it into a jar and that’s it!
