Instructions For Slow cooker apple butter
Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker’s crock.
Cover and cook on low for 12 hours.
After taking off the lid, simmer for a further two to three hours, or until the butter is quite thick. To get the thickness you want, you can cook it for as long as you like.
Put the hot apple butter into canning jars, cover with a ring and flat, and store upside down. To seal the lids, let cool in this position.
It can also be kept in the refrigerator for two to four weeks in an airtight container. Should it endure that long.
