I cannot believe it’s October already, and I am so happy to be sharing one of my fall favorites with Ruthie today.

Nothing says fall like apples and cider, and one of my all time favorite fall treats is apple butter. Apple butter is almost impossible to find in stores off season, and even during the fall, it’s not always that easy to locate.

It is however, very easy to make. In fact, you only need apples and cider, and a free afternoon. You don’t even have to core or peel the apples.
