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
