Directions

  1. Combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and cloves in a slow cooker.
  2. Cook on High until the apples are tender enough to easily mash with a fork, 4 to 6 hours.
  3. Puree apple mixture with an immersion blender until smooth.
  4. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack apple butter into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.
  5. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

My fiance & I have made this delightful recipe. Instead of all of the spices we used only 2.5 tsp. cinnamon. As for the sugars - we used 1 cup of each (brown and white). My fiance loves this applebutter.

It is really good. My son says it has converted him into an apple butter lover! It is extremely easy to make. I used 13 golden delicious apples and it made two quarts. I need to go get more apples from the orchard!!!

So good and so easy! We cut down a bit on the sugar as our golden apples were pretty sweet, but no other changes. Thanks!
