Apple Butter

Ingredients:
5 1/2 lbs apples cored and quartered
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Place quartered apples in slow cooker. Mix sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl and pour over apples in crock pot. Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup water. Cook on high for 1 hour. Then cook on low for 9-12 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thick and brown. Uncover and continue cooking on low to allow the mixture thicken. Spoon mixture into sterile containers, cover, and refrigerate/freeze.

The first time I made apple butter was with Molly and Kelly when we lived in North Carolina. It turned out to be a great Christmas gift!
