Here is a recipe I make every Fall after we go to Apple Hill. It is easy to make and so delicious all through the Fall!
All Day Apple Butter
5 1/2 pounds apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place the apples in a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Pour the mixture over the apples in the slow cooker and mix well.
Cover and cook on high 1 hour. Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.
Uncover and continue cooking on low 1 hour. Use an immersion blender to make it extra smooth after it's done cooking.
Spoon the mixture into sterile containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze.
