My house smelled wonderful all day. I made apple butter in my crockpot.
The recipe I used is adapted from this recipe. My recipe is below.
Homemade Apple Butter
2 quarts of homemade, blended applesauce
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/16 tsp. ginger
1/2 cup honey
Mix all in a small crockpot and heat on low. Place crockpot lid on wooden skewers to allow steam to escape. Cook for 7-12 hours, scraping sides of crockpot every hour or so to keep from burning. When as thick as you want it put into jars. Cool and freeze or refrigerate with labels.
I had the above jars from jam and decided to use them and will freeze my apple butter. I left about an inch of head space in my jars to allow for expansion in the freezer. Mine cooked for about 9 hours. You could also can them in a water bath using canning jars.
The apple butter will keep for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator or 6-12 months in the freezer.
