I love apple butter! Typically, it full of sugar or HFCS....not allowed here. So I found this post for crock pot apple butter. I don't have a crock pot. Why, you ask, a few years ago we sold EVERYTHING, and moved to Italy. (Massive amount of photos on my other blog, LitlequeenRules.) I had to get rid of all my small appliances since the electric is different in Italy. We came back and I have not replaced anything except a coffee maker which I missed so much! I do like espresso but being an American I missed my "dirty water" as the Italians call it!
ANYWAY, I took Haley's recipe and made it my own.
I started with apples!!...
1 red delicious
2 granny smith
Then I peeled, cored and chopped and put into a pot ....
1/8 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg (it is so much better tasting when you grind your own, I use a micro plane)
1 cup apple cider or juice or water (we got a great tasting apple cider from Trader Joe's)
1/3 cup raw honey
Cook on medium for about 20-30 minutes. The reduce to low for at least 2 hours.
then you get this....
Then I reduced the liquid by half or so... you can cook it down until you like the consistency.
I got this many containers....I am freezing them because I have not gotten a stock pot yet to can with.
