Ingredients

  • apples. 14 large apples fit in my 6.5 quart crockpot

  • 2

    tsp cinnamon

  • 2

    cups white sugar (see note below)

  • 1

    cup brown sugar (see note below)

  • 1/2

    tsp cloves

  • 1

    T vanilla

Directions

This is a 2-day process. Quarter the apples and take out the core. I did not peel, and picked out the skin later. If you enjoy peeling, or have one of those cool apple tools that peels easily, you should peel. Although my picking out the skin later idea worked, it was kind of a pain. But (for me) it was easier than peeling all of the apples by hand. Put all of the quartered apples into your crockpot. Add 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. When the cooking is done, mash the apples with a fork. Pick out the skin with the fork. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Cover again and cook on low for 6 hours. Pick out more apple skin. If you prefer your apple butter to be velvety-smooth, blend with an immersion blender, or blend in small batches in a traditional blender.
