Crockpot Apple Butter – Easiest Ever!
At the base of my stairs I have quite a few apples freshly picked from a farm near here. As I was contemplating what to do (I’ve made apple sauce, apple crisp, apples and peanut butter etc.) my mom said, “Why not make apple sauce in the crockpot?” This is why I call my mom everyday, I swear in every conversation she makes my life easier. :)
Excitedly I ran downstairs to my apple stash and immediately set up my table with a cutting board, ready to fling the little chunks of apple into my crockpot.
About 15 minutes later I had filled the crockpot nearly to the brim, added 1/3 cup of water, sprinkled some cinnamon on and walked away.
At 4am I was awoken by the most beautiful smell, warm apple sauce. Drifting back to sleep I swear my mouth was watering!!!
When my alarm went off this morning I sprinted (well ok, I walked) to the kitchen excited to peek at the apple sauce. Lifting the lid, I peered in on some pretty dark apples. Must be the cinnamon I thought…
As I stirred the apples I quickly realized I had made apple butter, not apple sauce!
After adding about 2 tablespoons of honey, it was delish!
We rarely have bread in our house since my son is gluten-free, but I happened to buy some on a whim the other day. Perhaps it was my subconscious knowing I would be making something yummy.
As you can tell, there is a little bit of apple butter on here. haha!
