Homemade apple butter

I guess it was time for another first here on the farm. Since we found our heirloom apple tree loaded this year, we've been coming up with all kinds of ways to use the apples.

So at some point, it would be time to try our hands at making apple butter. Well that time came today. We found a crock pot recipe for it and have been cooking the apple butter, for what seems like all day. We've got about 45 minutes before it's time to jar it up. Sorry, I don't have any pictures to post yet. But I will try to get something up tomorrow.

I do know this..
It looks like apple butter; it smells like apple butter; it tastes like apple butter.. It must be turning into apple butter.

I'll be conducting the "official" taste test in the morning, so check back for the results.
