As for the apples, I will be making some crumble, but one recipe that has been requested by my husband is some of Nessie's Crock Pot Apple Butter. Nessie was our neighbour when we lived in Glasgow. We still remember her with great fondness.
The Crock Pot Apple Butter recipe is really, really easy - all you have to do is peel and core the apples, and throw it into a crock pot also known as a slow cooker, along with sugar and spices and then let it cook, very very slowly, stirring it now and again. Its really, really lovely. Once you have opened a jar, you will find yourself eating it out of the jar like 'peanut butter'. Yum. Its gorgeous spread especially on croissants. I've also made Pear Butter using the same recipe. I am sharing a photograph of the Apple Butter that has been previously posted on my blog back in 2010, as its one of my favourite food photographs when I lived in sunny Glasgow.
And I think this Apple Butter recipe is perfect to share with my Scottish host Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchen for 'Slow Cooked Challenge'. The theme this month is 'open', so anything goes. For the Crock Pot Apple Butter recipe follow this link, it happens to be suitable for vegans too.
