Slow Cooker Pork Loin Recipe with Vegetables - Perfect Fall Dinner with your Crockpot

Feel-Good Food for Fall

Crisp mornings, cozy sweaters and a craving for comfort foods are all sure signs that autumn is in the air. No fall menu is complete without hearty, homestyle dishes that evoke feelings of well-being and warmth, and there’s no better way to capture the flavors of fall than with the season’s signature ingredient – apples.

Serving up fall’s best feel-good foods doesn’t have to be hard. One clever solution: apple butter. Made from apples slow-simmered in kettles of sugar, apple cider and spices, apple butter is more than just a spread. It’s also a versatile ingredient that can enhance your favorite sweet and savory recipes. I prefer to use Musselman’s Apple Butter, which lends a unique taste to main dishes and desserts alike.

  1. Oh gosh does that ever look good! I love the idea of the apple butter; it’s so rich and thick and I bet it tasted wonderful in this – plus once I open a jar I’m really excited and use it several times, then maybe the next week once or twice, and then it tends to languish in the fridge. This would be a great way to ensure it doesn’t sit too long after I lose interest!

    It’s going on my must make list!

    Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for sharing with us at Throwback Thursday!
