APPLE BUTTER, TRADITIONAL

 

Fix-It And Forget-It Big Cookbook: 1400 Best Slow Cooker Recipes
by Phyllis Pellman Good
Traditional Apple Butter Recipe for Slow Cooker
Wilma Haberkamp Fairbank, IA ~  Vera Martin East Earl, PA
Makes: 8 Cups
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 10-13 Hours
Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 3-Quart



Ingredients
~ 12-14 medium, tart cooking apples (about 16 cups chopped)
~ 2 cups cider or apple juice
~ 2 cups sugar
~ 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
~ 1/8--1/4 tsp. ground cloves (add 1/8 tsp. cloves first; taste about halfway through the cooking time to decide if you want to add the other 1/8 tsp.)


Directions
1.
Core and chop the apples. Do not peel them. Combine apples and cider in your slowcooker.

2. Cover and cook on Low 9-12 hours, or until apples turn mushy and then thicken.

3. Puree apples in a food mill or sieve.

4. Return pureed mixture to your slow cooker.

5. Add sugar, cinnamon, and cloves and mix together well.

6. Cover and cook on Low 1 hour.

Tips:
A.
This will keep several weeks in your refrigerator. You may also can or freeze it.
B. This is good on bread or toast. Or use it as a topping over ice cream. Or try it as a filling for apple turnovers.

Variation:
For a thicker finished product, drop Step 6 and do this instead:
1. Cover and cook on High 6-8 hours, stirring about every 2 hours.
2. Remove the cover after 3 hours so that the fruit and juice can cook down and become thicker and more concentrated.
3. Spoon into hot sterilized jars and process according to standard canning methods.
