On Sunday afternoons, after church and breakfast, I sometimes like to take a busman's holiday and search out new blogs to read. A few weeks ago I stumbled across Autumn Living, and found the most wonderful recipe for Crock Pot Apple Butter posted. I filed it away in memory for a few weeks, and decided this weekend to try it out. I can attest that it is the simplest "canning receit" I have ever read.... made in the crockpot, and put into jars heated in the oven. It is delicious and has the most beautiful color. We are going to make more over the next few weeks, and try different varieties of apples as an experiment. The ones used this weekend were Granny Smiths. I highly recommend it!
