Apple Butter Recipe


A Recipe and Craft Project!

I have 2 passions, cooking and crafting.  Sometimes they even come together!  If you're on FACEBOOK with me then you know what I've been up to for the past couple of days.  Where did this come from?  My new obsession, Pinterest!  If you've been wanting to make Apple butter then break out your crock pot!

(My new Pinterest Button for my Blog)

I tripled the recipe since I hade a Costco bag of Fuji's.  This yeilded 7 cups (or 7 jars) of Apple Butter.
I have a big family so 3 jars wasn't going to cut it.

I decided to can my Apple Butter so I could store it.  Submerge your jars and boil for 15 min.  Cool them on a rack and wait for the "POP"  That's my favorite part!

My batch yielded 7 250ml jars.  I gave 3 jars to my friends and neighbors. 

I was so excited to use my Preserves cartridge.  The recipe cards are cut at 5", the font is 1" and the apple cuts are 2" with layers.  Then add your recipe.

I used the Lid Feature too and cut at 2".  And added a little button up there.  They turned out so cute!

Apple Butter Recipe

click HERE to see where I got the recipe.
(This was grabbed from http://www.skinnytaste.com/)

  • 2.5 lbs (6 large) apples, peeled, cored, finely chopped (I used honeycrisp and gala)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
Place the apples in a slow cooker. Top with sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg and mix well.

Cover and cook on low 10 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.
Uncover and puree with an immersion blender. Cook on high uncovered 1-2 hours
Spoon into sterile jars, or containers and refrigerate.
This is a really easy recipe I promise!  I have never had Apple Butter and I was so excited I made Sourdough Bread (and english muffins).  I used my sourdough starter and used the recipe from my William and Sonoma Cook Book. Click HERE to see the recipe.  This was my first time making bread without a bread machine!  I was stressed but the bread is WAY better!  It turned out more like an Artisan bread.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
