Apple Butter

I can not believe I made Apple Butter today. I’ve been wanting to work up to canning and I heard making apple butter is  a pretty easy way to start. Where ever I heard this from, they were wrong. Making apple butter was intimidating! I followed this recipe and started cooking around two in the afternoon and didn’t stop until nine! I used only a small handful of apples from our day at the farm.

I bought new canning jars for the occasion, washed them and sterilized them.

and proceded on with making the apple butter. It lifted the house with an amazing fall-like smell, apples, cinnamon and spice. But it sure did take quite awhile to get it all done. I’m eager to spread some on a slice of my husbands hand baked bread. I’ll let you know if it indeed turned out.
