Apple Butter

My long time friend, Pam, made apple butter this weekend and shared the recipe and this picture.( She does wonderful things with fruit and baked goods!)

5 1/2 lbs. cored, peeled and chopped apples (Pam uses Macintosh)
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt

Place the chopped apples and the rest of the ingredients in a crockpot   Stir to blend well.
Cover and cook on High for one hour
Reduce the heat to Low and cook 10 - 11 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thickened and dark brown
Uncover and continue to cook on Low for one hour.  Let the mixture cool a little and then put it through the food processor.
Spoon the mixture into clean freezer containers, cover and refrigerate or freeze

note: Pam says you can add more sugar if you want a sweeter butter

Thanks for sharing this Pam!! Feel free to share often!!
