Puttin' up apples

These are gonna be yummmy this winter! I used a recipe called "Crock Pot Apple Butter" that I found online. Here's a shot of the apples cut, peeled, cored, and sprinkled with sugar, apple pie spice, and cinnamon.

After two and a half hours on high, they looked like this:
After five hours they were perfect!! I wanted my applebutter to have some big chunks of apple in it, so I scooped out about half of the mix and gave it a couple of turns around the blender before dumping it right back into the crockpot. Here's what it looked like when I was done:

Time for a water bath!
Then a cup of coffee while I sat and listened to all the jars pinging...what an awesome sound...

Yummy, I love apple butter and your pictures make me thing I should do some this weekend. I made some apple syrup recently and brought some to work yesterday with some sliced apples for dipping. I went over really well! and now I have an idea what to give for gifts to co-workers this year.
