Oh man am I excited about today's recipe, guys.
Not only is this something I've been wanting to make for a very long time (seriously...how have I not made apple butter yet?!) but it uses some super amazing ingredients AND is cooked in a slow cooker! Score! I love things that are easy to prep, use high quality ingredients, go into the slow cooker and I barely need to attend to. Slow cookers are where it's at, friends. They do all the work for you and allow you to create some magical foods without all the fuss.
My grandmother used to make apple butter all the time. She had the most delicious apple trees in her front yard and when they were filled to the brim with tart and sweet apples, she'd pick a bunch (trying to get to them before those pesky birds) and make a batch or two of apple butter. I remember loving that! So wish I had her recipe- it was amazing!
It's about time I have a little recipe of my own! My husband and I love this stuff so much and usually just end up buying a few jars from Oak Glen or wherever else to enjoy during the fall.
