Apple Butter

I don’t post a lot of ‘canning’ recipes on here because most of what I know about canning is in my head. I just do things the way I saw them done when I was young and I can’t really guarantee the accuracy of all of them.

This recipe here is a good one for canning and giving out as gifts though. It really does taste so much better than the store-bought kind too and it makes the house smell so wonderful when it is cooking!

I’ll see if I can dig up my easier crockpot version too!
