All-day apple butter

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5½ pounds Apples; peeled and finely chopped
4 cups Sugar
3 teaspoons Cinnamon
¼ teaspoon Ground cloves
¼ teaspoon Salt

Place apples in a crock pot. 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 ½-inch headspace. Cover and refrigerate or freeze.
