Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter
Via The Gracious Wife

Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter
Prep time:  20 mins
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 20 mins
Serves: About 4-6 cups

6 pounds of apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
a pinch or 2 of ground cloves

Peel, core, and slice all 6 pounds of apples.
After the apples are sliced, just toss them into the Crockpot, along with all the rest of ingredients and stir. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until apples are very soft, stirring every hour or two.
When the apples are cooked through, puree them in a blender or food processor. Depending on the size of your processor, you may need to puree in several batches. I recommend pureeing even if you're using applesauce so that the spices get blended thoroughly and the texture is smoother

Then just put it all in a container and put in the refrigerator or freezer. Or immediately slather generously on toast.

Via Home and Plate

Honeycrisp Apple Quesadillas with Bacon and Cheddar
Total time: 10 minutes
Makes 2  

1 Honeycrisp apple, cord and thinly sliced
4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 flour tortillas


Bring a large skillet pan to medium heat. Once the pan is hot, place the tortilla in the pan and layer on the bacon pieces, apples and cheddar cheese. Top with the other tortilla and cook for about two minutes or until the bottom tortilla is golden brown. Use a spatula to check often. Flip the quesadilla being careful to keep ingredients sandwiched between the two tortillas. Once the other tortilla is golden brown, your quesadilla is ready.
