  1. Place apples in a slow cooker. Combine sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt; pour over apples and mix well. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 9-11 hours or until thickened and dark brown, stirring occasionally (stir more frequently as it thickens to prevent sticking). Uncover and cook on low 1 hour longer. If desired, stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Spoon into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-in. headspace. Cover and refrigerate or freeze.

I did not like this recipe. I thought it has to much ground clove. Also it never stated what kind of apples to use so I used Fuji and it just did not taste right!

I made this last year and gave it as Christmas gifts. I had so many compliments and requests for more. I did add extra spices - i like my apple butter spicier. I also made it with 2 cups brown s...
