Try some­thing dif­fer­ent with your ap­ples

The Progress-Index Weekend - - FOOD - Pru­dence Hilburn

Ilike to make my ap­ple but­ter in a slow cooker. You will no­tice from the fol­low­ing recipe that I don’t use much cin­na­mon in my ver­sion, be­cause I want to be able to taste the ap­ples. I want “ap­ple” but­ter, not “cin­na­mon“but­ter.

Ap­ple cake and ap­ple pies are fa­vorites at our house, but ap­ples are also a great ad­di­tion to cof­fee cakes such as the fol­low­ing Ap­ple Bran Cof­fee Cake. Slow Cooker Ap­ple But­ter • 1 (3 b.) bag app es, pee ed a d coarse y c opped (abo t 8 c ps) • 2 c ps s gar • 2 tea­spoo s gro d c
