Grandma Sue’s Apple Butter

It’s that time of year again. The air is crisp, the leaves start changing, and people turn into fall obsessed, pumpkin spice loving, boot wearing crazies! Don’t get me wrong, I love fall and everything about it. I just think its hilarious how much attention fall gets! You would get a weird look if you said something like, “I can’t wait to wear sunscreen and hide from the blistering sun this summer!”

I especially have a soft spot for fall this year because we are expecting our second son in October. I am 34 weeks along and I am so ready for summer to be over! I know there are tons of moms out there that can sympathize with me, so I am not going to go into details. All I want to say is it has been a HOT summer! So bring on fall and all the crazies!

Okay my rant about fall is over. What I’d like to share with you today is Grandma Sue’s Apple Butter recipe! Grandma gave me tons of apples, so what better thing to do then make her apple butter. The aroma of allspice and cloves turns me into one of those crazy fall people! And it will you, too! If you are looking for a sugar free recipe….I am sorry, this is not for you. But when you spread this spiced jam on a fresh baked biscuit, you will be thanking me for every calorie!

Apple Butter

10 C. Apples (peeled and cubed) 

8 C. Sugar 

1/2 C. Vinegar 

2 tsp. Cinnamon 

1 tsp. Allspice (ground) 

1 tsp. Cloves (ground)

Peel and cut apples, put them into a crock pot with all other ingredients and cook  on low for 10 to 12 hours. Apples will cook down. Apple butter makes a great gift!
