Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

All Day Apple Butter

What can’t you put Apple Butter on? Spread it on crackers, fruit, raw vegetables, broken bread or dip your finger in it when no-one is looking. Truly a Yankee staple for the holidays. If you don't want to hv to pay attention(too much) to your Apple Butter, then I urge you to try this ssslllloooowwww moving recipe.

Ingredients

For 4 people

Recipe

  • 6 lb(s) apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • 4 cup(s) white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt

All Day Apple Butter Directions

  1. Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.
  2. Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown. Uncover and continue cooking on low 1 hour. Stir with a whisk, if desired, to increase smoothness. Spoon the mixture into sterile containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze.
