{Yummy} Apple-Butter

Today I was HoPiNg to be in WeStOn, Missouri at their ApPLe CeLeBraTioN.  Weston is a quaint little pre-civil war town in the rolling hills of northwest Missouri with so much to offer.  I especially love their apple OrChArDs and PuMpKiN farms where you can pick your own apples and pumpkins.  The tractor-trailer ride to the pumpkin patch where my family visited had spectacular views of the RolliNg CoUnTry-SiDe!  

Lara and I had wanted to take our families and make a day of it, but due to other obligations we were unable to go.  So, instead, I am going to share with you a recipe I came up with InSpIrEd by one of my visits there:  ApPLe-BuTtEr.  It is so YuMmY and EaSy!!  Weston’s Apple Celebration also InSpIrEd me to make ApPLe DuMpLiNgS which are also YuMmY and oh, so PrEtTy, but that’s another post for another day!!

I usually like to get my apples for my Apple-Butter from a nearby orchard, but this year I was unable to do so.  Instead I bought them from the store.  Because I love GrAnNy SmItH apples, those are the ones I chose.  This is a great recipe to make on a Saturday when you’re home hanging out with the family watching football!

{YuMmY} Apple-Butter Ingredients

  • 12 big apples 
  • 2 cups sugar (use 1 cup if you want to cut out some sugar)
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter  (you can omit this is you are wanting to cut down on fat)

Peel and core the apples and cut into small pieces.  Place in a CrOcKpOt. 

Add the rest of the ingredients. 

Place crockpot on high.  Stir occasionally.  In about 4-5 hours VoiLa!!

 

The apples will break down on their own as they cook.  When the Apple-Butter is finished I like to place them in jars, save one, and GiVe the rest away!!
