Preheat oven to 450º. Stir together all the dry ingredients until well mixed. Cut in the applesauce with a pastry cutter or two butter knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the milk all at once and stir just until the dough clings together. Lightly flour the surface of a cutting board and knead the mixture a few strokes. *Pat or roll dough to about a 1" thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter, or the top of a drinking glass, dipping the edge into flour between each cut. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer biscuits onto it. Bake for 8-10 minutes or till the biscuits look golden. Serve warm. Makes about 8 biscuits.

*Note: You can also bake these as drop biscuits. Just drop large spoonfuls onto your baking sheet, leaving room for expanding in the oven.

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Recipe by

MyVega.com

 

Ingredients

Approximately 3 lbs apples (any variation, or an assortment of different kinds)

1/4 cup water

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cloves

1 Tbsp lemon juice

Optional: 1 to 2 Tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

Chop and core apples. You do not need to peel and can leave these pieces fairly large. An apple slicer is perfect for this task!

Place apples in slow cooker with ¼ cup water and set on high for four hours, covered with lid. Stir two to three times per hour.

Once apples are soft (this might happen before the four hour mark depending on the amount you’re using) mash your apples into “applesauce” with a large fork or spoon. This should happen easily.

Turn off the heat and spoon the mixture into a blender (you can let your applesauce mixture cool a bit before transferring into blender if you want). Blend on high, stopping to let some steam escape and scraping down the sides as you go. Blend until mixture is very smooth and silky.

Once blended, carefully transfer mixture back into your slow cooker

Stir in spices and set to high. Continue to cook, without the lid, for 45 to 70 minutes, stirring and watching to ensure it does not burn on the bottom.

Once you achieve desired consistency (texture should appear thicker) add lemon juice and spoon into glass jars and let cool with the lids off. It will thicken as it cools. Taste and add additional maple syrup and spices as desired.

Once cooled place the lids on and store in refrigerator for up to three to four weeks. Freezing leftovers works too!

Remove from heat, whisk well and pour into a glass jar. Store covered in the fridge overnight. NOTE: The final amazing flavor will not be complete until this step.
