I found my pictures!!!! I have always been one who doesn't read the instructions, but tries it over and over, until I get it. That is what I did last night. Whew!
Jim and I decided about a month or so ago, to give gifts this year made at home by us. The first item is apple butter. We drove to the apple orchard on top of one of the mountains, got our apples, and began thinking of how long it would take us to peel, core and slice 5 lbs. of apples.
Someone Jim knew from 'way back when' had given him an apple peeler, but finding it was another story. We both looked all afternoon and finally.....we found it, cleaned it up, hooked it up, and was ready to begin.
Also, fortunately I have an apple corer/slicer, so we went to it! Here are some pictures from the procedure.
Our instructions were to get them in the crock pot, add sugar and spices, and then cook overnight. We did so!
This morning when I took the lid off, this is what I saw........golden brown and smelling dddddelicious!
Next, used mixer to smooth out the 'lumps' of apple, leave uncovered for a couple of hours, to cook down some of the juice, place in jars and 'wa - la', first gift of the season done.
Tonight starts basketball for Aryn and the game is at their school, so we will be going to that.
Have a wonderful day. Did you remember to thank God this morning, for letting you live on His earth another day?
