One thing completed today. Canned 6 small jars of homemade apple butter. Here is the recipe I promised.
All Day Crock Pot Apple Butter
5 1/2 lbs of Granny Smith Apples
4 Cups sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Cook 9-11 hours in crock pot.
I cooked mine on high for about 45 minutes, then cooked on low all night. Mash apples w/ potato masher and cook a little longer to thicken.
Pour in sterilized jars. Clean jar rims. Put lids on and boil in water bath for 5 minutes.
This one is so easy since it cooks in the crock pot. Let me know if you give it a try.
