Delightful Apple Butter

Janet Scott


This recipe is simmered in a crock pot for a total of 24 hours. I have been told that it's not as sweet as they are used to and others say it's just perfect, not too sweet.

20 c
peeled cored and sliced apples (fill to the top a large 6 quart crock pot) any type of apple works out great!
1 3/4 c
apple cider
2 c

2 tsp
ground cloves
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 dash(es)
ginger (my dash is about 1/8 teaspoon)
1 dash(es)

1Peel, 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.
2**** 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.
3After 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
4After all is pureed, place your product back into your crock pot.
5Add your sugar and spices, stir to blend and cook for another 10 hours.
6Now your ready to start canning!
7These make wonderful gifts. Have fun!!!!
