All the comforting seasonings of a cup of Chai tea in thick apple butter. The sugars in the apple caramelize with the long cooking becoming a deep dark brown. No need to PEEL the apples my choices are Winesao, Granny Smith, Gala and or Gravenstein. cooking them pureed instead of sliced, you can get more into the crock pot so this will take longer cooking time. Making more and making for a very fragrant home and neighborhood! You know Chai means tea? So if you want the tea flavor added, try the optional black tea ingredient. Top a pork roast, oatmeal, pancakes, french toast use as sandwich spread.
