Benjamin Squirrel’s Easy Crock Pot Apple Butter

20161010_2012486 quarts of Applesauce
2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon of allspice
1 Crock pot (slow cooker) 6 quart size

Large spoons and ladles


Fill the crock pot to within an inch of full with applesauce, mine takes about 5.5 quarts.:

Stir in the spices: 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon of allspice or spice to taste.

Set the crock pot on low or medium heat. . Every crockpot is different, so you just going to get to know which setting works best on your crock pot.

Cover it loosely, I use a pair of chopsticks which I place across the top of the crock pot, then I put the lid on top of those.  This leaves a space for the moisture to escape when cooking down the butter.

Leave it to cook for 6 – 18 hours.   How long depends on the size and power of your crockpot, and how thick you like it, Stir it occasionally, to keep the butter from burning to the sides of the crock pot.  When the apple butter is at the desired thickness transfer to containers and refrigerate or seal in canning jars.  I allow mine to cool, place it in medium plastic containers and freeze it.
