Slow Cooker Apple Butter
As you probably know by now, I love anything with apples. This apple butter is so easy and delicious (even though it takes all day).
- 5 1/2 pounds apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
- 4 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Use any kind of apples you prefer or a variety of different kinds. Place apples in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.
Cover and cook on high 1 hour.
Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.
Uncover and continue cooking on low 1 hour. Stir with a whisk, if desired, to increase smoothness.
Spoon the mixure into sterile container, cover and refrigerate or freeze.
Yields: 4 pints
