Apple butter recipe

The Golden Delicious apples we picked at the apple farm were slightly under ripe so I decided to save some fresh for later and preserve the rest of them. I decided that apple butter made in slow cooker would be the easiest way to cook them. It took all day to make this but there is really little work involved, just cooking time.
So I am glad to share this recipe with you. I used ground cinnamon and cloves but you don't have to if you prefer non spiced apple butter. Here is what you need:

6 lbs organic apples, cored and chopped to about 3/4" pieces
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Wash, core and chop your apples. Mix the seasonings, pour into apples and mix well.

Place the apples in a slow cooker, cover and cook on high for about an hour. Stir the apples and reduce heat to low. Cook an additional 8 hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture should become thick and brown. Use a hand blender to get a smooth texture and cook on low for additional hour.
Prepare your jars, wash and sterilize them. Spoon the hot mixture into the prepared jars, cover with a lid and turn them over on a clean kitchen towel. Let the jars cool and store them in the refrigerator.

Enjoy and please let me know how you like it!

я удивилась что 8 часов варить надо

Наташ, это потому что в волшебном горшочке. На плите быстрее будет, только мешать придется часто, чтобы не подгорело.

О! а мы как раз на эти выходные будем урожай яблок собирать в нашем новом саду, как во время рецепт увидела :)
