How To Make delightful apple butter

  • 1
    Peel, core and slice your apples. Hopefully you have a fancy gadget that does it all for you. Fill your crock pot clear to the top where the lid just about sits on top of all the apples.

    **** I use crock pot liners, helps with the mess and works fabulously **** Pour your apple cider on top and cook on low for 14 hours. I usually like to do it just before I go to bed.

    After 14 hours, ladle your apples in a food processor a little at a time and puree. You will need to have a bowl to place the finished product as you go

    After all is pureed, place your product back into your crock pot.
  • 5
    Add your sugar and spices, stir to blend and cook for another 10 hours.
