Apple butter in a crock pot!
Servings: 4 half pintsPrep Time: 30 mins....hmmmm Cook Time: 5 hours
4 pounds cooking apples, peeled, cored, sliced
(highly recommend an apple peeler corer/slicer!)
2 cups white sugar OR brown sugar (I use the brown sugar)
1/3 cup water or apple cider (I prefer the cider)
2 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1. Place apple slices in a 3 1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker. I use two slow cookers and my Nesco. Stir in water, sugar, vinegar or cider, and spices. Cover and let cook on high setting for 5 – 6 hours. Stir. Cool at least 1 hour or cover and chill over night, if you’re going to freeze. OR ladle apple butter into jars. I make mine in quarts. You can use whatever size canning jar fits your needs, just make sure to process accordingly. I have also placed this into freezer-safe containers and frozen it. Both ways work great. To use the water bath method, time according to Ball. Time 10 minutes for pints and quarts.
