Minimal Effort Apple Butter
5 1/2 pounds apples, peeled and finely chopped (Granny Smith preferred, but any will do)
4 cups turbinado sugar
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Place the apples in the crock pot. Mix the other ingredients and pour on top.
2. Cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 9-11 hours (until it begins to look like apple butter). Make sure to stir it every once in a while to keep the apple butter from sticking.
3. Uncover and cook on low for another hour. If the apple butter is still lumpy, stir with a whisk. Refrigerate, or refrigerate what you need and freeze the rest. Enjoy!
