Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter (Sweet and Savory by Sarah)

  • 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.
