Saturday, we were able to snag a great deal on a bushel of apples. $9.00 for 40lbs. of apples rates as an excellent deal on my price page!! :-) So today, I delved into a very delightful task!
I gave the apples a quick bath.
Then put my ever so clever apple tool to work-- LOVE this thing!! It saves so much time and effort!
Had to snap a picture of my very willing helper! I won't be surprised if his arm is a little sore in the morning. :-)
Got them all peeled, cored and cut up. Added some sugar, a few spices, and they were ready for the crock pot. After a few hours the house was starting to smell wonderful and the apples looked like this:
Several more hours, and it was looking like Apple Butter!! Ready to be canned.
About 10 hours after starting this project: canned goodness!!
Kelsey asked me to make biscuits as soon as it was done, I didn't think any of us really needed biscuits at 9 p.m. so I assured her they would be on the Tuesday morning breakfast menu!! :-)
What a wonderful Monday!!!
