For those of us that don't have much time to cook, here is a simple recipe for apple butter,, I have used it several times and it is great.
-apples to fill crock pot
-4 cups sugar
-3 tsp. cinnamon
-1 tsp. cloves
peel, core, and slice apples to fill pot
cook on low for 18 hours(don't lift lid)
Remove lid and stir well. Add sugar and spices, cover and cook 4 more hours. Take off lid and cook on HIGH for the last hour.
Good luck :)
