Crock Pot Apple Butter - Table For Seven

    Today we have our third apple recipe of the week!

    Apple butter has been something that I’ve wanted to try for a while now.  Since we have been apple picking twice in the last month and have just about enough apples to feed our entire block, it was a perfect time to give it a try. It turned out pretty well.

    But, I learned two things. First: cooking for shorter amount of time will give you more apple butter. I used a good amount of apples and what you see in the jar in the picture, is what came out of them. It was pretty thick, so, next time, I will shorten the cooking time a bit, hoping this will help.

    Second: use the correct type of apple.   used Macintosh, so, our apple butter was a bit tarter than we would of liked it. Lessons learned.

    Next time, Granny Smith or perhaps Fuji? Or a combo of different types?

    Any advice? This is new territory for me 🙂  All in all though, very good and very easy to make.
    Definitely making this one again!
