Crock Pot Apple Butter
We usually buy one or two 40-pound boxes of apples at a time. We peel, quarter, and core the apples. Then, place the apples in large kettles of boiling water. Cook over medium heat until apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Then drain, cool, and place in zipper-style freezer bags, about 9 cups to the bag. Freeze apples until you are ready to make apple butter. Thaw apples before proceeding with recipe. ... Marge Clausen, former innkeeper
Put ingredients in 6-quart crock pot. Mix well and cook on high for 10 to 12 hours. Cooking time will vary depending on the crock pot. One of mine takes almost 16 hours to cook the apple butter.
Stir mixture from time to time and taste after a few hours. Add more sugar or spices if necessary. When apple mixture reaches the consistency of apple sauce, turn off heat. Some folks leave the apple butter with this textured consistency. We prefer it smoother, so we process the hot mixture in a food processor for a minute or so. Then we refrigerate some for immediate use and freeze some for later use. If we have made a double or triple batch (by borrowing crock pots), we also put some in jars to sell in our gift shop. We process the jars of apple butter in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
