Directions

  1. Blend apples in batches in a blender until no large chunks remain.
  2. Combine blended apples, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger in a slow cooker.
  3. Cook uncovered on High for 1 hour. Place cover on slow cooker and continue cooking, stirring about twice per hour, until smooth, 6 to 8 hours. Remove the cover and continue cooking and stirring until thick and spreadable, 2 to 4 hours.
  4. Spoon into jars leaving about an inch of space at the top; seal and freeze.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • This uses very little sugar and retains lots of the apple flavor. Pureeing beforehand makes it easier than attempting to mash them at a later stage. You can let it cook longer if you want it thicker. *I use this to make roughly eleven 4 oz jelly jars.
  • You can let it cook longer if you want it thicker.
  • You may choose to use whole spices in place of the ground version, but they can lose flavor from cooking for hours in the slow cooker.
