The leaves are changing, it’s cooler but still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors. It’s also the perfect time to go apple picking with loved ones and bring home tons of apples.

When our family goes apple picking we bring home a lot. It may be because we are a family of seven so when everyone starts picking them the bags get really full! 😉 There is so much you can do with apples and today I’m sharing with you a very simple recipe for Apple Butter and it tastes soo good!
