So many apples!

Ohh Sunday’s are my favorite! I worked last night, boo but I prepped some crockpot snacks before I took a nap this morning!  Score for delicious food ready for when I woke up… And since I woke up I have been hanging with the family and watching Netflix on the couch! Freaking amazing, because I never get to do this! In other exciting news the hubby has been busy prepping our little farm for a new addition arriving today… More details to come, stay tuned!halloween

On another unrelated note… how is it November already? Seriously.  This year has completely flown by! I hope you all had an awesome Halloween, a little late I know, but we have been busy! These past two weeks have really been packed full of activities for us. And yesterday I was just updating our November family calendar and realized this month is going to be just as busy! We have managed to cram in apple picking, Halloween parades, Trick or Treating and more before Halloween.

Last Sunday we went to Boo at the Zoo at the Philadelphia Zoo for the first time. We had a blast, and the kids had a pretty good time as well! We had a beautiful Ariel, red hair and all, Batman and Tinkerbell in our entourage! The weather was just beautiful in the morning, but later in the day the rain came and we only got about an hour into Trick or Treat. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, the extra candy laying around isn’t good for figure!apples3

I may be a little late hopping on the apple bandwagon, since apple season is pretty much over.  But I wanted to share my recipe for Crock Pot Apple Butter anyway because it is soooo easy! Apple picking is one of our favorite fall activities! We picked about 50 lbs this year and I used a good amount of them for this recipe.  I actually made two batches because we love it so much! We planted two apple trees on our property when we first moved here and cannot wait till they start bearing fruit! There are so many things to make with apples! This recipe is probably the tastiest thing you can make with the least amount of work! The hardest thing is peeling the apples, and if you have one of those fancy apple peeling contraptions then these recipes are REALLY easy!!

Instructions
  1. Prepare your apples. Peel, core and dice. I do not have one of those fancy apple peeler but this worked just fine!
  2. Pile all your apples and all other ingredients into your slow cooker
  3. Cover and cook on low for 10 hours. I usually throw everything in before bed and let it cook over night
  4. Aftern ten hours transfer everything to your blender or food processor and blend until smooth
  5. Transfer back to the slow cooker and cook on low uncovered for about another hour. Stirring every 15 minutes or so. This helps it to thicken up
  6. Transfer to containers for storage. I use mason jars and keep them in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer for several months
