Apple Butter/CrockPot/Canning?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of taking advantage of apple season by making some apple butter and canning it for gift-giving season. I've never made apple-butter, never "canned" anything...is this doable? Not to be attempted by a beginner? I don't have a canner; I'd be doing it the "really old-fashioned" way. :001_smile:


I thought it might be a nice idea to get these gifts made and DONE in November. Usually, I have to wait to do treat-ish gifts so they are fresh....this would be great if it would work!


Here's the recipie I found... http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/All-Day-Apple-Butter-2/Detail.aspx

It's definitely do-able. My 11 yo and 15 yo made apple butter plus a bunch of other jams and jellies for their fair projects.


I'd recommend starting with half the sugar and spices, then adjusting to taste once it's cooked for awhile.


When I don't want to drag out my canner I just use my 8 quart soup pot and it works just fine.
