Making apple butter in a crock pot is about the easiest thing you will ever make. Except for peeling the apples, there’s nothing to do really but wait while the crock pot does the work. Apple butter is great on toast, bagels with cream cheese or my personal favorite, pork chops.
It was another beautiful Fall weekend, and we had the boys while their parents went to Rhode Island for a wedding. There’s a really nice apple orchard not too far from the cabin and the whole experience is like something out of a Normal Rockwell painting; dogs running freely, tractors, barns and even golf carts you can ride, which the boys loved.
This adorable baby was at the orchard and is only three months old. He broke his leg while jumping off a couch. 🙁
Apple picking is hard work…
Aside from being delicious, this apple butter will make your house smell AMAZING!
