Life is always worth celebrating… especially when jars of strawberry-apple butter are in the refrigerator.
Strawberry Apple Butter
12 medium apples, unpeeled, cored and thinly sliced
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
4-5 cups washed and pureed strawberries
1 tsp. liquid stevia
Toss apples, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, strawberry puree, and stevia into an oversized crock pot. Bake on medium to high heat (for approximately four hours) until apples are soft. Transfer apples and strawberries in small batches into a blender or vitamix. Blend until smooth. Store jam in the freezer or refrigerator in mason jars or specific freezer containers. Tip: Leave 4-6 inches of air space at the top of containers that will be placed in the freezer.
