Hmmmmm apple butter spread.

Just finished up a batch of Apple butter.
20 apples from our trees.
about 2 1/2 cups of sugar, I used 2 brown and half white.
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon apple pie spice.

Core and peel apples, cut in slices and pop into a crock pot with the sugar and spices.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Throw into a blender and blend all the chunks and juices up together - enjoy your apple butter!

Summer has gone

Summer has left us!! Its chilly and damp with rain.

I started knitting again, this time I'm "Twining" a form of Swedish knitting using two strands of yarn and weaving them together while knitting. Creating a double thick knitted item. My "item" is an ear flap hat!
