This makes a delicious apple butter using no sugar but our favorite--honey! Easy and makes the house smell really yummy!
- 3 (23 ounce) jars applesauce
- 2 cups honey
- 12 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Mix all ingredients in your crock pot. Cook on high for 1 hour and then on low for 11-12 hours till thick. Stir occasionally. Transfer to 4 pint jars and invert to seal. Apple butter should be hot enough to not have to can in a water bath.
- You may also cook the mixture on low on your stovetop for approximately 3-4 hours.
I made this with homemade applesauce on the stove top. I cooked it on low until it had the right consistency. I was out of cloves, so I used Cardamum. Which was WONDERFUL! The honey in this is PERFECT. My husband said 'why buy jelly'?
