Special Desserts for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching. Some of us still have our mothers with us and others have many good memories of their mother. I still have my mother but my mother-in-law has gained her heavenly reward. Here is a list of a few of my favorite desserts that I love to make for special occasions. Somehow cheesecakes still top the list of desserts I love to make.

Seafood Pasta Salad THM-S

Pasta Salads are always delightful at picnics and carry in dinners. Our family loves any type of salad and seafood, so why not combine the two! Most Seafood Pasta Salads use imitation crab meat but I have chosen to use canned shrimp and crab meat because of all the additives in imitation crab. This salad also reminds me of warm sun, sandy beaches, and ocean waves.

Apple Butter THM-E

Fall has arrived and the lovely aroma of cinnamon fills the air as apples and pumpkins are turned into delicious fall treats. Years ago, making Apple Butter was an all day affair, as it was made in large copper kettles over an open wood fire. It had to be stirred continually with large wooden paddles so it wouldn’t scorch.  The Apple Butter was slowly cooked until the point where the sugar caramelized giving it a dark rich color and great flavor.  Today, crock-pots have replaced the copper kettle and the sweet cinnamon aroma fills our kitchen.

Apple Butter THM-E

Place apples and water into a a kettle over medium heat.  Cook for 10 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Cool slightly. In a crock-pot, add cooked apples, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and sweetener. Put lid on–keeping it tilted so steam can escape. Cook on high for 6-8 hours. The time may vary depending on how juicy you apples were. Fill 8 ounce jars with hot apple butter. Add lids and rings. Place  jars in a hot water bath canner. Cover jars completely with water. Bring to a boil and process for 10 minutes. Remove jars from canner and allow to cool. 4 pints

*I used a mix of Gala, Granny Smith, and Fuji Apples.

*adjust the sweetener as needed.
