Good thing I re-read my last blog post, otherwise I would have totally forgot to post about my sons latest & greatest obsession...APPLE BUTTER! My company sends out a monthly newsletter, and they feature a new recipe on each one. This one caught my eye, but I have to admit, I was timid about giving it a go. It ended up being A LOT of work (for my husband - he volunteered to peel all 3 lbs of apples), but the end result was exactly what the title is...SIMPLE & SWEET!
I couldn't just can the apple butter and give it away all plain, I had to spruce it up a bit. I stood in line for an entire hour (with my 3 year old in tow) to get 1/2 yard of fabric (which was entirely too much I might add), and came home to assemble the Cricut apples from the Doodlecharms cartridge. Here is the end result, I was so pleased. The response from the people who received a jar was the greatest reward, OH, and that my 3 year old was begging for apple butter on EVERYTHING!!!
