I swear Porter had fun, he is just intense about cutting his apples :0)
This apple butter makes your house smell amazing and makes a great holiday or hostess gift! I stored mine in mason jars-don't mason jars just make you smile? Make some apple butter this fall-you won't be disappointed!
Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter
adapted recipe and photo by Jill Chall
original recipe by Sweet and Savory by Sarah
15 whole small/medium apples (or enough apples to fill the crockpot) I used a mix of gala, winesap, and golden delicious
1 T vanilla extract
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c white sugar
1 T cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t ground cloves
Peel and dice your apples and throw them in your crockpot. Add vanilla and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Stir every now and then to check on the apples. Once the apples have completely cooked down, add the sugars and spices. Cook on low for another 4 hours. Store and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks. (You can also freeze individual servings in an ice cube tray!) Enjoy it!
