Next, I'm going to try apple butter!
I confess that even though I have that nice new Crockpot, yesterday I used my old Sam's Club porcelain cast iron Dutch oven to braise a small pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches. I still like being able to control the cooking time and temperature using the oven.

You'll enjoy slow cooker apple butter, Bakechef.
I like using the jars because it helps me determine consistency. I can take one out early if I want it to be softer to use as a sauce, and leave others in until they are quite thick like the stuff in the can.

I'm Bloggin'
