Recipe: Homemade Apple Butter

Homemade Apple Butter
Cook Time: 8 hours

approximately 8 medium size apples, peeled, cored, sliced
2 c sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves
3/4 cup water
pinch of salt

  1. Put all of the peeled, cored and sliced apples into a crockpot and set on low.(You may want to use a food processor on the slices for a little starter jam.)
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until evenly mixed. 
  3. Cover and cook on low setting overnight or until the butter is of a thick, spreadable consistency (about 8 to 10 hours). Stir every other hour in the beginning, but more frequently as the butter thickens to prevent burning.
  4. If the apple butter has too much liquid, remove the lid and cook on high until thickened. 
  5. Allow to cool.
  6. Put in container for refrigerator storage or freeze for longer storage.
