Making Apple Butter
I love apple butter on biscuits, but I am not a huge fan of the apple butter you can purchase at the grocery store. A few years ago, we had a large amount of apples given to us by someone and I decided to make some of my own and the recipe that I used instantly became my favorite by far so now any chance I have to make some, I will. Luckily last week, my husband had someone bring him some apples from a local orchard that were not " up to grade", but perfectly good apples. I decided that we needed some apple butter and got busy making it.
Very blurry photo of the first batch of apples, but this is what I started with.
Washed them first and prepared to make my diced apples.
I hate coring them, but I can easily do it with the knives I was using.
Measuring the diced apples. I have to have 5 quarts, which means that this needed to be full 5 times.
Yes, I use my crock pot setting on my NINJA cooker to make apple butter. It makes the house smell delicious and I don't really have to do much after the initial work. It is 20-24 hours of pure heavenly aroma.
Here is my hand written recipe that was given to me by my great aunt. I love this recipe and I will be making more soon. I believe we still have enough apples for one more batch.
