The crock pot does all the work for you + while you sleep it doesn't get much better than that. When morning rolls around you will smell all that wonderful goodness as soon as you walk in the kitchen. The hardest part of the whole recipe is waiting to get that first taste. The first bite is so divine slop it on some hot biscuits and you are good to go. It is also wonderful on toast or scones. Whatever you serve apple butter with this recipe is sure to be a hit.

Ingredients

  • 1- 48

    - 50 oz jar unsweetened or cinnamon apple sauce

  • 3

    - lbs granny smith apples, diced

  • 4

    - cups sugar

  • 1

    - cup juice or apple cider

  • 2

    - teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1

    - teaspoons cloves

  • 1

    - teaspoon allspice

Directions

1. Peel and cut apples into small chips. Place all ingredients in the crock pot and stir. Cover and cook on low overnight (eight to ten hours). In the morning remove cover, stir and taste. Add more spices or sugar if desired. 2. Remove the lid and change the temperature to high continue cooking for about 4 more hours, uncovered, until some of the liquid is gone and the apple butter has cooked down a bit. Rule of thumb a wooden spoon should be able to stand upright when you place it in the apple butter. Pour into jars and refrigerate or process in a hot water bath. Serve over hot biscuits, toast, scones. 3. Process half pints for 5 minutes and pints for 10 minutes. The time starts once the water comes to a boil.
