I love Fall, not that we really have seasons down here, but I like the food.
I also, really, really love apple butter, but I’m not a fan of what I can find in the local grocery store.
So I figured I would find an easy homemade apple butter recipe and take a stab at it.
Some people really want you to slave over a stove for hours to make this.
Not me… I don’t have time for that. So I found an easy, peasy crock pot recipe.
The original recipe was HUGE, so I cut it half. Seriously, who needs that much.
