Easy Homemade Apple Butter

We like to smear it on our toast, muffins, mix into our yogurt or oatmeal, even over waffles....Nothing says mmmmmmmm better than apple butter!  Here is my easiest and best recipe:

10 cups of finely diced apples with skins
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of apple juice or cider
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger

Dice your cored apples, with skins on, as fine as possible. Place all the ingredients into a crock pot.

 Cook on low for 8-12 hours stirring occasionally. When the apples have fully cooked to a mush I run it in small batches through my food processor. 

Spoon into clean jars and boil for 10-20 minutes in a bath of boiling water if canning. Otherwise, they can be stored directly into your fridge or freezer.
