Slow Cooker Apple Butter

It's always fun to make little homemade gifts for people. I especially like edible ones!

This one is a super easy Apple Butter recipe (which I found somewhere online). And the best part is that it's all done in a SLOW COOKER!



The simple steps are written below.



Once the ingredients are added to the cooker..you are pretty much a master at the whole cooking part and that's exactly how I like to cook.

So now for the fun decorating of the jars!


I had some old fabric, some cute ribbon, fur looking twigs and buttons!



Before!


After!







Cut fabric in to small squares depending on the size of your jar lid. Next I hot glued the ribbon to the rings of the jars. Add and embellishment to the top if you like.

This batch of Apple Butter made 24 4oz. jars! That's a lot of gifts! Add to some hot biscuits, toast, scones, or just eat out of the jar when no one is looking!

Have a great Friday!

Did you process the jars to seal them??

I think you can omit the applesauce and just use more apples to get the same results; I had a coworker give me a huge bag of pears, and this method was a great way to work thru them ^_^

super-cute packaging!
