Apple Season!

What do you do with apples this time of year? The two things I've been thinking about since I started seeing apples pop up at local farm stands is applesauce and apple butter. I've never made either one, but I'm sure going to give it my best shot this year! Would you please share your recipes and tips??? I prefer sugar-free applesauce, but I'm not sure if you can do apple butter without it. Crock pot recipes welcome (and maybe even preferred). Thanks mamas!!!

Re: Apple Season!

My mom cuts up apples and makes pie filling. Then you can freeze each batch in it's own bag, or you can freeze them in bags inside pie plates.

Re: Apple Season!

I like these cookies, but instead of using dried apples, I used fresh and they were yum-o!
