I love apple butter, but hating taking a lot of time to make it. So I converted my grandmum’s apple butter recipe into a crockpot recipe.
First, get a bunch of apples(I used around 10 pounds), peel and core them. Then chop them up into small pieces. Place them in the crock pot until it is full. I then always add 2 cups of apple cider(really helps the flavor) and my spice blend of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, small dash of ginger, allspice, and cardamon. Stir these into the apple pieces and put the lid on.
I let this cook down until the apples are all mush. . . then I cook it some more. I cook mine until it is a really dark amber color and almost all the moisture(juice) is gone. Then it is ready to put in jars or eat! Very simple very easy and very yummy! Picture of the apple butter in jars coming tomorrow!
