Apple Butter {Mind Over Batter}

Hey you – Yes, you…

I’m leaving… On a jet plane… I thought you should know.

I’ll be back in a week. I’m headed to the Motherland, meaning the Dominican Republic. Yea, I’m from there. I’m going to get my fill of humid island air and way too many cocktails.

While I’m gone I thought I’d give you something to do. It’s not fall yet, but I’ll be back September. That’s kind of like fall.

So while I’m guzzling crazy copious amounts of piña coladas and Presidente beer, I’d like you to do two things:

1. Buy yourself a wicked cool fall scarf.

Why? Because you should own a wicked cool fall scarf.


2. Make this apple butter from Simply Recipes.

Why? Because you and I are making apple butter bars. No, really – We are… I’m just trying to give you a head start, is all.

Apple Butter {Mind Over Batter}

This apple butter is so good. And easy! I used a combo of apples, going hard on the Granny Smith for a slightly tart apple butter. It’s all good, though… I loves me some tartness. You can use any other cooking apple. Mix and match. Go crazy with the spices! I added a bit of ginger, allspice, cloves, cinnamon, and freshly grated nutmeg.

That’s how I roll….

I’m spicy like that.

My mom  ate a whole jar in one morning. It’s that good.

I ate a whole jar by myself… Like a total porker.

You didn’t need to know that, but I was illustrating a point. Showing you my porker skillz…

Um.. Yeah…

  1. Buy a wicked cool fall scarf.
  2. Make this apple butter.
