APPLE BUTTER~


It's that time of year where we see and think APPLES~  Making your own apple butter is so easy.  I went to the local Mennonites and purchased a large bag of Gala apples.  I peeled them.. cut the cores out and put them in the crock pot on high heat.  I added some brown sugar, covered them and let them cook for about 8 hours. I started them early in the morning, or you can let them cook over night.  What ever works for you~  The house was smelling lovely!  When I opened the crock pot they were soft with some bubbly juice.  Using a potato masher, I mashed the apples, then with my immersion blender I blended until smooth.  I added a drop of Young Living Cinnamon Bark and Clove essential oils,(click here to order oils).  Oh my..  that was just what it needed.  I cooked for an additional two hours on high, uncovered.  It turns very dark brown and is spreadable.  You can just keep in the fridge for a month or so, or can them in a water bath canner.  My family thought this was the best thing in the world.  They ate it with a spoon right from the crock pot.. put it on toast, ice cream, and anything they thought of....
