I'm telling you, I am more busy now that I am not working!! We are all over the place these days! Wednesday library, Tuesday play dates, taking care of the garden, having friends over for lunch, getting ready for my parents big visit! It's is great, I love to have stuff to do, which is why I loved making this apple butter.
Making this batch of apple butter took the whole day. We had to go and collect all the apples from the trees in the back yard, then sort them out (some had already been eaten by our garden friends), then we washed, peeled, and cut them, put them on the stove and let them cook for hours.
Making apple butter is so easy, cook the apples with some spices, (I use ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and a few cloves), then when the apples are mushy add in your sugar ans some lemon juice and cook down until thick. I really like my apple butter to be thick, so I cooked it for a long time. I put it into clean, hot jars and sealed them. So easy, and so yummy.
The problem now is, what do I do with the rest of the apples I have? Any suggestions?
