Slow-Cooker Cran-Apple Butter

Today I’m guest posting for Andrew as part of the October Unprocesed challenge. You can find me on Eating Rules with a sweet and simple recipe for Slow-Cooker Cran-Apple Butter.

From the post:

“Smooth, spiced apple butter has become an integral part of autumn around here, with alternating flavorings such as vanilla bean, cinnamon, and cardamom taking turns jazzing up the fruit spread.

This year I’ve been obsessed with mixed fruit butters and couldn’t get the thought of adding fresh cranberries to my apple butter out of my head. It turns out that the tangy, deep red preserve is one of the prettiest and most flavorful of them all.”

Read the rest and get the recipe over on Eating Rules. I’ll see you in the comments!

Note: I know I talked about delivering a recipe for chocolate beet cake today… it will come this week, I promise!

Happy Thanksgiving Monday to my Canadian readers!
