Apple Butter Making

We made cute little jars of apple butter for Ryan to give to coworkers.
Swapping gifts with co-workers is an adjustment. You don't see to many military men swapping gifts, but civilian's do. 

12 cute little jars and they loved them. 
Raved about how good that apple butter was. 


Apple Butter
Granny Smith Apples
Red Delicious Apples
wash, cut up, and fill your crockpot about half full with the combination of apples that you love. 

4 cups of sugar
2 tsps of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of cloves
1/4 tsp of salt
Pour over your apples and mix

Cook on high for one hour. Stir as often as you wish. 
Cut temperature to low and continue cooking for 9 to 11 hours.
Again, stir! It makes your house smell so good!
Uncover and cook for about an hour if your apple butter needs to thicken. 
Now, our apple butter was more chunky than I wanted so I poured it into my blender and blended for about 1 minute. This made it super smooth and easy to pour.

Enjoy and tell me if you do something different. I would love to hear.
