Alphabe Thursday: Letter B - Butter
B is for Butter. I’m no Paula Deen so this post won’t be about how to turn two sticks of sweet creamy Butter into something wonderfully decadent and delicious.
One of my favorite aspects of Blogging is meeting phenomenally creative, gracious, and compassionate fellow-Bloggers. All of you are so encouraging, complimentary, and inspiring.
Recently, I posted about our trip to the apple orchard and how many apples I have. Lynn from Happier Than a Pig in Mud commented that I should make Crock Pot Apple Butter. I thought you had to have a copper kettle to make apple Butter. Turns out, you don’t!
I found this recipe on Cooks.com and it is easy and delicious. I also tried making it with Splenda instead of sugar.
I hope you enjoy it.
CROCK POT APPLE BUTTER
Approximately 3 pounds apples
3 Cups Sugar
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Allspice
1/2 Teaspoon Cloves
Dash of Salt
3/4 Cup Water
Fill crockpot 3/4 to top with apples (peeled and sliced). Add remaining ingredients and stir to evenly coat apples. Cover and cook on low overnight.
In the morning...
Fresh apple Butter for your toast. Yum!
