Easy Apple Butter

6 Unsweetened (14 oz cans) apple sauce
3 c Sugar ( white; brown, other sweetener of choice) *note
1 tb Cinnamon
1 ts Nutmeg
1/4 ts Cloves


Put applesauce and sugar in slow cooker. (If using artificial sweetener do not add to mixture until after the butter is done and cooled) Cook until about half the original volume. I usually cook on high during day and low at night. With my slow cooker on my last batch I used high for 3 hours, low for 9 hours and high again for 8 hours. There is nothing magic about the timing sequence. I add the seasoning in the last half hour of cooking. This makes about 6 cups.


If your slow cooker is too small for all the applesauce, use what you can and add the rest after it has cooked down for a while.


I keep some in a jar in the frig and freeze the rest in small packets to use later. You can also pour the apple butter when hot in steralized jars and seal.
