Crockpot Apple Butter Recipe
5 ½ lbs apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
2 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp salt
4 cups white sugar
Place the finely chopped apples in a slow cooker.
In a mixing bowl, combine spices, salt and sugar. Add to the slow cooker and mix until well combined.
Cook the apples covered on a high temperature setting for about one hour, then reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for a further 9 – 11 hours. Give the mixture a stir occasionally. Once the mixture has thickened and is dark brown, uncover and cook for a further hour on a low temperature setting.
Use sterile containers and fill with the apple butter, cover and refrigerate. Apple Butter can also be frozen.
