Adventures in Canning: Apple Butter

I am having so much fun canning!! I feel like lately I’m constantly looking for the next tasty thing I can put in a can these days. It’s kinda silly. One of my favorite sweet things ever is apple butter. So it seemed like the next natural choice. Here’s the link to the recipe I used.

First you need a bunch of apples and a way to slice/core/peel them. Fortunately, my mother had one from her canning days in the 70’s.

After 6 hours, it did the trick!


First I mashed it with a potato masher. Then moved on to the immersion blender.


Into cans, 10 minute water bath and Voila!!


Can’t wait to have it on pancakes!!
