The best part of this time of year is the apples! I love to make a good apple butter.
Apple butter is time consuming and messy. I've been making Crock Pot Apple Butter for a few years and have found that it tastes as good and is a lot less work.
Here's the gist of it.
Crock Pot full of Apple Sauce - I make my own by boiling apples and sending them through the Victorio Food Strainer. Buy one if you find one cheap.
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Pour it all into the crockpot and taste. You may need more sugar if your apples are super tart. If they are sweet, don't add as much sugar.
