I used a variety of papers from Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. I really thought I would use Green at Heart paper pack more, but I really don't care for it. There is just too much purple in it for me.
I tried out the new Jumbo Scalloped Dienamics from MFT and I really like them except for the fact that it leaves an embossed line on the paper from edge of the die. But, if I flip it over to use the other side, the paper is somewhat "embossed or wrinkled" with the cutting side of the die cutting plates. I just might be using them incorrectly. Hmmmm. Anyone got any advice for me?
I got lots of questions about the Crock Pot Apple Butter recipe. It turns out fantastically, and tastes amazing. I used apple cider instead of water, so that helped to intensify the flavors.
To can it, you just sterilize the jars and lids; then spoon the apple butter into the hot jars making sure to clean any spillage off before attaching the lids. Then, put them into a water bath, filling to at least 2 inches above the lids. I boiled mine gently for 30 minutes, then set them out to cool. The pinging of seals is a glorious sound!
