Easy Apple Butter
I know the calendar says we only have about 7 weeks until Spring, but around here it is still very much Winter. That means it is still comfort food time. There is no better comfort food than warm apple butter slathered on a piping hot biscuit. In my search for a great crockpot apple butter recipe, I was also looking for an easy one. Now what I mean by easy is pouring all the ingredients in and letting the crockpot do all the work. During my search I came across a recipe from Denise, at Little House on the Valley the recipe seemed simple enough and I was ready to give it a try.
Peeled, cord, and sliced up all the apples to fill the crockpot.
Once the hard part (it wasn’t that hard) was complete of taking care of the apples it was time for the remaining ingredients. This was just a matter of putting all remaining ingredients in a bowl and giving them a good stir. Basically making sure everything was well incorporated prior to pouring over the top of the apples. Pour the mixture over the apples and set the crockpot to make its magic.
As you can see the end result was beautiful and tasted even better. This crockpot apple butter is great on a biscuit, toast, pancakes, or maybe just right out of the jar. I made a few adjustments to recipe, but it was based only on my families particular taste.
Apple butter does not last long around our house. The kids eat it on absolutely everything including right out of the jar (I make separate jars for them). Give a pint or two to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or family and they will appreciate the warm goodness on a cold day.
Do you have any easy cold weather recipes that your family enjoys?
