I have had a request for the apple butter recipe.
So here it is!
3 lbs apples
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice (optional)
1/2 tsp. cloves
Dash of salt
3/4 cup apple cider (NOT apple cider vinegar)
Fill a crock pot 3/4 full with peeled, cored and sliced apples.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.
Cover and cook on low overnight (about 10 hours).
If it seems like there is too much liquid in the morning,
remove the cover and put on high. Let it
cook until thickened. Stir often.
To can: Leave 1/4" head space in canning jars
( I got 12 half pints) and process
in a boiling hot bath for 10 minutes.
