So excited about this month!
It’s all about appetizers and I’ve got a tonne to share. I’ve also put a bunch of home canning recipes that are so awesome to have on hand for all those drop in guests. These are all great gifts too.
First up is Apple-Persimmon Butter (there’s some pears in there too but the name would be WAY too long).
Everyone gets together in the slowcooker and you walk away-for a really long time.
Sterilized jars, a water bath to make sure everything is super safe and Bob’s your uncle.
- ½ cup of lemon juice (use the bottle stuff as the acid is uniform)
- ¾ cup of maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 12 cups of chopped and peeled apples and pears and persimmons
- 2 cups of water
- Place all ingredients in the slowcooker and put on high for nine hours. Sterilize 4-250 ml jars place in water bath and seal for 13 minutes. Note: don't like to can? How about just putting them in pretty jars and place in the fridge instead? These don't need time to mellow, it's delicious from the start.
