We went Apple picking yesterday. So you know that means you are going to be getting a LOT of apple recipes for a while right?
I grew up in Miami Florida where we did not really have seasons, and so I really get a kick out of all the seasonal stuff that we can do here in the Midwest. One of my favorites is the apple picking. It is such a great family activity and well let’s face it apples are YUMMY! Here are a couple pictures of our fun time getting all our apples, if you get the chance I highly recommend planning this as one of your next family outings!
Apples – We used about 13 but our apples were small
2 Cinnamon Sticks
½ tsp Ground Nutmeg
½ tsp Ground Cloves
1 Cup Apple Cider
Peel, core, and slice your apples then put them in the crockpot
Add all other ingredients to the crock pot and set on low for about 8 to 9 hours.
Store and eat your yummy apple butter (you could just lick it off the toast as my little one did!). We filled 2 half pint jars with this recipe.
