This apple butter is made in a Crock Pot, it takes about 12 hours so I prepare it in the evening and by morning it's done, It is well worth the wait. There is nothing like homemade!
Blue Ribbon Recipe
The taste of this spicy-sweet butter brings back so many childhood memories of eating apple butter with my cousins, the Daileys. As a team we would go through what seemed like gallons of the stuff in less than a week. I hope you love this as much as I do.
Place the chopped apples in the crock pot and add the rest of the ingredients, stir to blend well.
cover and cook on high for one hour
reduce heat to low and cook 10-11 hours, stir occasionally. Until mixture is thickened and dark brown.
Uncover and continue cooking on low for 1 hour.
Stir with whisk if desired to increase the smoothness
Spoon mixture into clean freezer containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze
**** You can add more sugar (up to 4 cups) but I like mine just a little tart but still sweet. I don't think I would ever use more than 2 cups even if the Apples are tart.
