This past weekend I experienced the fall itch. It’s the desire to pull out the fall clothes, trade in my sandals for boots, and spend Sunday rooting for my favorite team (go Cowboys!) After going through the closets and pulling out all the fall decorations I moved into the kitchen to prepare the final stage of my home makeover. I wanted the house to smell of fall so I decided on a Crock Pot Apple Butter recipe.
Now, I’ve had my share of apple butter but never thought of making it until I saw this recipe. It was so easy to make, no canning involved, and can be frozen for up to six months. I even put some in small jars to give as gifts.
Come celebrate all that’s great about apples at Brookshire’s Apple Festival, October 23-24. Your hometown store will be serving-up special events and sales. Stop by to sample apples, apple juice, apple muffins, apple butter, while the kids bob for — you guessed it, apples!
