My grandpa gave me apples the other day! I do eat one a day religiously as the saying goes. In addition, I could not wait to use them in recipes and make homemade apple butter. We did end up placing a batch of apples in the slowcooker for homemade apple butter to give out at the holiday this past weekend.
I personally feel like there is nothing better than homemade thoughtful gifts to give out during the holidays to our friends and family.
