Picture this…a schmear of your own slow cooker apple butter on toast, plus a container stored in the freezer so you can serve it on top of Brie with toasted walnuts as a holiday appetizer!
Maybe it was a Puritan’s sense of humor, or poor marketing on the Pilgrims’ part, but there isn’t any butter in apple butter; it’s really thick apple sauce made in the crock pot overnight with spices and honey. You can serve it on a pork chop, with morning pancakes, or fold it into loaf bread. Our recipe, adapted from one we like on Food.com is really easy. It’s the perfect make-ahead for Thanksgiving or any holiday brunch.
