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!

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.
Are you hungry?

  6. Looks so yummy!

    Question, if I were to make this, what would I use in place of an immersion blender (as I don't have one). Thanks!

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
