This is the season for pumpkin patches and trips to the orchard, so why not whip up a batch of delicious apple butter? One of my family's favorite fall treats, apple butter can be enjoyed as a spread on toast, crackers or fruit slices. Essentially, apple butter is just spiced and seasoned applesauce, but oh, is it tasty!!
Make a trip to a local farm or farmer's market to pick up some fresh organic apples, then get ready to can! Here are a few sites we've found with great apple butter recipes and instructions:
