  • Apples - whatever fits in your crock pot, about 10 Lbs of apples (I had about 20 apples, all different varieties-added in 2 batches)
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 Tsp ground cloves
  • 1-2 C apple cider
  • Sugar to taste (optional)



Step 1

Dump ingredients into the crock pot and turn on low for about 8-10 hours. Add more apples at that point if you want (this will add about 8 hours). Cook on low for another 8-10 hours or so. Remove cinnamon sticks-if you used a more tart apple, add sugar (1/4C at a time). Mine ended up cooking for about 36 hours because I wanted it nice and cooked down, this is kinda of up to you though, it needs at least 16 hours but can go up to 48 hours.

For the last 2 hours; prop the crock pot lid and let the extra moisture evaporate umtil you get the desired texture.

Place into jars and place in refrigerator. Use immediately, does not preserve well.
