Super Easy Crock Pot Apple Butter

I found this recipe on BackYardChickens.com and thought it sounded good.

This makes great apple butter! It really is super easy!!

Super Easy Crock Pot Apple Butter

5 pounds of apples
3 cups of granulated sugar
2 tablespoons of apple pie spice
2 tablespoons of cinnamon

Peel the apples and chop them up pretty small. Toss them all into the crock pot and put it on high. Pour sugar and spices in on top of apples and stir to mix. You won't have to do anything else for hours except enjoy the great smell! About 4 - 5 hours later the apples should be soft (now is a good time to get a bowl of vanilla ice cream and try them as a hot topping --yum!!!). Take a whisk and stir the apple and sugar mixture and break up some of the remaining chunks with the whisk. I use those small jam jars and spoon the mixture into those until about a 1/4" from the top. Put the lid on and sit in the frig until they completely cool off, then stick in the freezer all the ones you plan to give away or keep for later! When it cools, the consistency is like jam, perfect!! Really good on toast, biscuits and waffles. I think it would make a super gift with loaves of homemade bread!!!
