Stir a couple of spoonful into pan drippings for a different way to de-glazed and make a quick and delicious pan sauce.
Mix it with cream cheese for a tasty dip.
Use it as a filling between cake layers.
Use it in place of some of the shortening/fat in a recipe.
There is more, and I am sure you get the idea.
But until I have a tree to work with............
I use to live in Yakima and I am familiar with Snokist. This company processes many of the Yakima grown apples. When I noticed these large cans at Costco, I knew my apple butter was only a crock pot away.
Start this in the evening and right after breakfast, you are ready to process your delicious apple butter.
Crock Pot Apple Butter
adapted from Sage Trifle
1 # 10 can of water pack applesauce
2 c sugar
2 T cinnamon
1/8 t cloves
1/4 t allspice
Mix all ingredients in a large crock pot. Cover with a towel or screen, cook on low all night.
Place a small plate in the freezer, to use the next morning.
In the morning, this will have reduced down about 1/3 in volume. Place a small spoonful on the plate and let cool. If thick enough, turn off crock pot and prepare jars and a boiling water bath. If not let cook another hour or two, then prepare jars and water bath.
Jar up the butter, lid and cap, per manufacturers instructions. Process 12 minutes in a boiling water bath.
