Crockpot Apple Butter - Dismc - cjs - 08-04-2008

Here's the recipe, I don't remember it, but I wrote on the recipe that I made it 8/93 and that the flavor was great!

Crockpot Apple Butter
Marcia Adams, Cooking from Quilt Country
Makes 4 pints

This is a simple version that starts with store-bought applesauce, cooked a long time in a crockpot. But it tastes just like the old-fashioned kind, baked down in a copper kettle over an open fire. Sweetened with honey, it has a smooth, smooth texture.

7 cups applesauce, preferable homemade, but a good-quality commercial kind (unsweetened) can be substituted
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups honey
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground allspice

In a crockpot, mix all the ingredients.
Cover and cook on low heat for 14 to 15 hours, or until the mixture is a deep brown.
Pack while hot into 4 hot pint jars.
Process in a hot-water bath for 10 minutes, counting the time after the jars have been immersed and the water comes again to a rolling boil.

Looking thru her books, she had some dishes that we really like(d). One that we made a lot was Sauerkraut soup. Her Country Stew, Swiss meatloaf, and especially the Onion Patties were great recipes.

Thanks so much, Jean. I've been wanting that recipe forever.
