Apple Butter - Slow Cooked

Makes 5 pints + a little extra ( I had about 1/4 pint left over)


10 Lbs Apples (Use any kind you desire, even mix and match flavors.  I used 5 lbs Granny Smith, 2 Lbs Gala, and 3 Lbs Red Prince)

2 Cup White Sugar

2 Cups Brown Sugar

6 tsp Cinnamon

3 tsp Ground Cloves

1 tsp All Spice

2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract


Peel, core, and dice your apples.  Place in the slow cooker (you'll want to use a large slow cooker, about 7 qt)  Mix together the rest of your ingredients and pour over apples.  Carefully mix it up.  Cover and cook on high for 1 hour.  Reduce heat to low and cook for 8 more hours.  Using a hand blender or potatoes masher, break up apples, so it resembles apple sauce.  Cook for 1 more hour on low so it cooks down and thickens.


*Note* Adjust sugar and spices as desired.  If you would like it less sweet or spicy, amounts can easily be reduced.
