The smell of apples and pumpkins have been wafting from my kitchen for the past few weeks, the weather is turning crisp, and the fog here in the Northwest is settling in! It is Fall once again! Now that we live in the country it seems we have an almost unlimited supply of apples! We have done just about everything that is decent to do to an apple! Apple butter, apple jelly, apple sauce, apple pie filling, you name it!!!
I have gotten a lot of requests for my apple butter recipe. So here it is...
4 quarts of applesauce
1 tablespoon vinegar (you can use apple cider vinegar but I don't like it, personal choice)
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp allspice
2 tsp cinnamon
4 cups sugar
cook on low in crock pot over night with lid propped up with wooded spoons. It's that easy!
You can can them in a water bath. 15 mins total processing time.
notes- if it looks runny in the morning, turn it up to high and take the lid off. it will thicken up in about an hour
Place a towel under the crock pot to keep the counter clean from splatters
I hope you enjoy making apple butter as much as I do! Let me know how it goes!!
