4 pounds cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced (about 12 cups)
2 C sugar
1/3 C water
2 T cider vinegar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 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.)
- 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.
