Crockpot Apple Butter
Apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
4 cups granulated sugar or less
4 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fill crockpot heaping full of chopped apples. The lid may not fit at first, but it will as the apples shrink while cooking. Drizzle sugar (sweet apples require less sugar), cinnamon, cloves and salt over apples. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 hour.
Turn heat to LOW and cook all day until thick and dark in color. Stir occasionally. Pour into small jars, leaving plenty of room for expansion while freezing. Cool and freeze.
