I like this recipe for the taste and because it all fits into my 4 quart crock pot (packed). After the batch is done, I can them into jars for home use and gifts. To make it easier on myself, I use my spiral apple peeler/corer.

Directions

  1. Place apples in slow cooker in thirds, layering sugar between each layer.
  2. Add rest of ingredients on top and pack them down as well as you can.
  3. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Open and give it a stir. Keep covered and cook 8 hours or until thick and dark brown, stirring occasionally. (You can do this overnight and can in the morning).
  5. Uncover and cook for the last hour on low.
  6. If a smoother apple butter is desired, you may puree in blender or food mill.
  7. Place in sterile jars with lids and process for 10 minutes in hot water bath or you can freeze.
