Celebrate the flavors of fall with this tasty apple spread.
  • 4-5 pounds of apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
  • 2-3 cups of white sugar (depending on amount of apples used)
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  1. lace apples in a slow cooker.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar*, cinnamon, cloves and salt.
  3. Pour mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.
  4. Cover and cook on high 1 hour.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and cook an additional 10-11 hours. Stir occasionally until the mixture is thickened and brown.
  6. Uncover and continue cooking an extra 1.5 hours (or until consistency is much thicker).
  7. Spoon the mixture into jars or containers, cover, refrigerate or freeze.
* I would recommend cutting the sugar quantity in half. The apples alone have a lot of sugar and you don't want to make the butter so sweet you can't enjoy it!
