Apple Butter

My family and I went for our yearly fall get-away week-end in West Virginia and we traditionally each bring one of the meal. It is always fun to taste every one’s recipes. This year, my daughter picked breakfast and she made apple butter for us. We woke up Saturday morning to a cabin filled with the aroma of cinnamon and apples, and it was just lovely.  I couldn’t wait to try to make my own and got to it right as I got home on Sunday.  So here it is:

Apple Butter

Wash apples and cut into chunks (skin on).  Fill crock pot to the top with apple chunks, add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and  a few dashes of nutmeg.

Add a few tablespoons of apple juice and a sprinkling of brown sugar.   Cover crock pot and cook on medium for 15 hours.  When cooled enough, process through a food processor or a mixture.

And there you have it!

We had ours with warm brown bread… Life is good!     Follow Me on Pinterest


Best Breakfast Ever

I came across this recipe a while back, changed it a bit and made it my own.  I love the taste, does not have a high glycemic load, and it keeps me full a seriously long time–a winner all around! I call it


5 egg whites

1/3 cup oatmeal, raw

1 T unsweetened applesauce

1 packet Stevia or to taste

Cinnamon to taste

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 small chopped apple

Mix all ingredients in blender.   Heat frying pan until hot and reduce temperature.  Spray nonstick cooking spray on pan and drop 1/4 of batter in pan.  Sprinkle 1/4 of diced apples when bubbles start.  Let it set, flip the pancake. Enjoy!
