    1. Oooh! Apple butter is my favorite! I'll be posting a strawberry jam recipe in a couple of days and it will go over the basics of canning, so you can easily just apply the technique to doing apple butter! And actually, apple butter is way easier because it doesn't really need all the fuss of adding pectin and getting the right consistency, just throw it in the slow cooker for a day and do the canning! ;)
