- 6 pounds medium apples (I used Jonathans, but any variety or mixture of varieties should work.)
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups raw or brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3-4 teaspoons cinnamon
Peel, core, and slice apples in fourths. Put them in the crockpot with the vanilla and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stir every few hours. Once apples are very, very tender, mash with a potato masher and stir in sugar and spices. Cook on low for another 5-6 hours, stirring occasionally.
Cool and pour into jars or an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator.
