Crockpot Apple Butter - Dismc
  Re: (...)
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.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.
