This is what the apples look like before you cook them. I don't have a picture of after! BUT! They basically turn to mush. It's perfect!

Ingredients:

4 pounds cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced (about 12 cups)
2 C  sugar
1/3 C water

¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

  1. Place apple slices in a crock pot (sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray). Stir in sugar, water, vinegar, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. (I threw in some extra cinnamon sticks I had that needed to be used.)
  2. Cover; cook on high-heat setting 5 to 6 hours. Stir. Cool at least 1 hour, or cover and chill overnight.  Ladle apple butter into half-pint storage jars or freezer containers, leaving a ½ inch of headspace. Seal and label. Store 3 weeks in refrigerator of for 1 year in freezer. Makes 4 half pints.
