car booty and apple butter!

Hello again...two days blogging in a row, check me out! Today's post is not only about the awesomeness that I scored at yet another car boot sale...but also about the glorious, wonderful, spreadable, scrumptiousness that is...APPLE BUTTER! 

I will get to the apple butter in a minute so let's discuss the bargain of the century I got for a whole £1...the beautiful book Granny Chic by bloggers Tiff Fussel (Dottie Angel) and Rachelle Blondel (Ted & Agnes). I could not believe my eyes when I saw this (clearly brand new!) book on the very first stall...and for a £1 no less! It is so lovely to flick through and packed with great ideas and diy's...I will bring you a post all about later this week. And the little heart tray? 20p...it's the perfect size for a mug of tea and a few biccies...

Ok back to the Apple Butter...For us here in the uk it is a very american thing, along with the likes of bacon jam...which by the way also sounds amaaaazing...so imagine my surprise to find a stall at the car boot on sunday that was selling jars of apple butter? Of course I snapped it up and because it is so scrummy I have been hunting for my own recipe for when this jar runs out...

...so I found this amazingly simple slow cooker recipe over on fab food blog My Baking Addicition. It's basically bung a load of good stuff in your slow cooker, leave it for hours and then blend...easy peasy! If you have a recipe for apple butter I would love to hear it, or if you have any recipes using it as an ingredient that would be great to! Ok the apple butter love in has finished...normal programming will now resume. x



  1. hiya, i found a recipe for apple butter only yesterday on pintrest, thought it looked yummy. here is the recipe (its in american with cups and crockpots which i presume means slowcooker ??) 1 dozen apples, peeled,cored, chopped. 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon allspice. then put it all in a crockpot and cook on low all night, blend in the morning,put in jars. let me know if you try it and it works, i might try it on the weekend but i dont have a slowcooker, maybe it could go in the oven in a caserole on v low ?? , x

    1. Ooh thanks! Yup I think crockpots and slowcookers are them same...I don't see why it wouldn't work in the oven or even on the hob maybe? Let me know if you end up making it! x

  2. wow that book looks right up my street, cant wait for yo to share a few pages.


Hello! So nice of you to pop by, please leave a comment if you wish. I love reading them all...Rebecca x
