Slow-Cooker Apple Butter

The kids and I made apple butter the other day and it was a first for us.  I had wanted to do this for a long time and had heard about making it in the crock-pot so I gave it a whirl.  It turned out great!

Here's all you do...

Wash and peel the apples.  This fella really got into it.

Chop them up.

Combine sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt.
Drizzle over apples.  Cover.  Cook on High 3 hours, stirring well with a large spoon every hour.  Reduce heat to Low and cook 10-12 hours, until butter becomes thick and dark in color.

Stir occasionally with strong wire whisk for smooth butter.

Pour into sterilized jars and seal.

4 qts. finely chopped tart apples
2 3/4 cups sugar
2 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. salt
