We went Apple picking yesterday. So you know that means you are going to be getting a LOT of apple recipes for a while right?
I grew up in Miami Florida where we did not really have seasons, and so I really get a kick out of all the seasonal stuff that we can do here in the Midwest. One of my favorites is the apple picking. It is such a great family activity and well let’s face it apples are YUMMY! Here are a couple pictures of our fun time getting all our apples, if you get the chance I highly recommend planning this as one of your next family outings!
Since I knew we were going to be getting a TON of apples I started asking friends and searching pintrest for some good recipes to try. I found this easy crockpot apple butter recipe from Teacher-Chef and decided to give it a try, but I did not want to make the amount she made so I cut the recipe in half and instead of it taking 16 hours it only took between 8 and 9 for ours to be ready. Also on her recipe she says you can add sugar but I thought it was great without and did not add any sugar at all and my family loved it anyway. So here is another great healthy treat I can feed my girls and they don’t even know it is healthy!
