6 medium apples (choose a sweet variety like Gala or Honeycrisp)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (or water)
1/2 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
pinch of sea salt
Place cored and sliced apples (not peeled) into a large slow cooker or crock-pot.
Add apple cider vinegar (or water) and spices. Stir all ingredients together, cover and let it cook for 5-6 hours on low.
The liquid will reduce and the apples will be very soft, dark in color and smell heavenly. Turn the slow cooker off and then use an immersion blender to puree the apples until smooth. Another option is to carefully transfer the apples to a blender and blend until completely smooth.
Once the apples are pureed, turn the slow cooker on high and heat the apple butter for 1-2 hours, uncovered. This will help it thicken and caramelize.
Once the apple butter is the consistency you like, turn off the slow cooker and let the apple butter cool for 30 minutes before transferring into airtight containers for storage. Let the apple butter cool completely in the containers or jars before placing in the fridge.
For storage: apple butter will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks or up to a year the freezer.

About 7 years ago I started looking into some CrossFit gyms. I went to 3 gyms in my local area. When I walked into 2... of them they handed me a piece of paper saying this is our schedule and how much it costs. When I walked into RADD one of the owners Diana had a conversation with me. When I walked out the door I knew this would be the gym I’d try out first. Fast forward 7 years later I can’t say enough good things about them. Not only did they teach me about getting fit but they helped me create a better lifestyle for myself and in turn my family. RADD Crossfit constantly goes over the top to help benefit not only their members but the community around them as well. I’m a school teacher in the Glen Cove school district and on multiple occasions they have invited students into their facility to exercise and share information about running a business and nutrition. If you have any second thoughts about joining RADD CrossFit just go in and chat with the owners. The first step is walking in the door. They’ll help guide you from there.read more

I recently joined RADD after moving from the city to Glen Cove, and so far the experience has been great! The owners... and staff have been incredibly welcoming, from the moment I requested information Dan reached out to me immediately (like, within a minute of pressing submit) and wanted to learn about my goals as well as what drives me to be fit and healthy. Since it’s a family run business, there’s definitely a personal touch you sense right away, they care a lot about their members and the quality of the space and equipment. With Covid, the safety measures in place have made me feel comfortable, and I’ve really enjoyed the workouts so far. The programming is well balanced and thought out, and it’s been great to help me get back in shape after quarantine. Everyone is super friendly and accommodating, I highly recommend RADD to anyone passing through the area or looking for a new CrossFit gym or fitness community.read more
