Recipe: Apple Butter

I don’t actually usually like things made out of apples but I wanted something that would travel well as a gift and since this season has gifted me with many apples, I decided to make apple butter. Especially when I found a crock pot recipe for it meaning that with the littlest amount of effort you can make this delicious spreadable. The original recipe is from A Year of Slow Cooking and all I did was halve the recipe.
