Crockpot Apple Butter
Makes 4 pints
5 1/2 pounds of apples, peeled and finely chopped. You can use all of one kind or 3-4 kinds like I do. (Make sure you use ones that will cook down)
4 cups of sugar
2-3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
Put apples and remaining ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour mixture into your crockpot and cook on high for 1 hour. Turn down to low and cook 9-11 hours, stirring occasionally, until it turns thick and brown. Uncover and cook on low for 1 hour longer. Whisk until smooth.
This recipe will make approximately 4 pints. I store ours in the refrigerator. Delicious on homemade toasted bagels.
