Making apple sauce, apple butter

I still have the bushel and half of apples to work up in the next few day before they start to get soft. When I did my cellar inventory yesterday I found out I only had 4 quarts of apple sauce left. So I can use more of that in the cellar. I can get to the apple sauce point and then put some of the sauce in a crock pot to cook down over night into apple butter. Very easy and no constant stirring.
Not much else done today, just kind of chillin out and getting the house cleaned up and laundry caught up a bit. Rob is home this evening and am thinking the best plan is to just visit with him and lil Abby. Amoy had to work and didn't get to come up. I still also have pears to peel and make into pear butter and pear preserves or honey. Maybe I should just get busy instead of doing inside stuff.
So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
