After seeing all the vendors selling apple butter, I came home and had to start chopping up the apples that I brought back from my parents’ place last weekend. I stuffed my slow cooker beyond full with a little over 6 pounds of apples, sprinkled a ton of spices and sugars over the top and left it go for the next 12 hours.
Today’s creation is Spiced Peach Jam. Spiced just enough to add to the ripe, juicy flavor of the tree ripened peaches.
I used my wonderful jam maker. However I have included directions for the old-fashioned method for those are not opposed to the hand stirring.
