Apple Pear Ginger Butter

Did you go apple picking this weekend and now you’re having apple overload? That was me a week ago. I made apple and peach cobbler, fed the kids apples at pretty much every meal, added them to everything I can think of, and there was still an entire bag. Since I was headed to Boston […]
