Crock Pot Apple Butter, take 1

Submitted by: ASPENGRRL

Introduction

My first attempt at re-creating my grand-dad's apple butter (for which I have no recipe), modifying a recipe I found online. My cooker holds 5.5 lbs apples (18 apples, I think), which is what I used. The recipe produced about 18 quarter-cup servings (for toast I'll probably use 1 Tbs as a serving, but it was easier to measure out by quarter cups!) (1/4 cup = 4 Tbs... so for the nutrition of one Tbs, divide the info by 4... this recipe makes 72 Tbs, according to the conversion calculator - but the nutritional value shown is for the 1/4 cup serving) My first attempt at re-creating my grand-dad's apple butter (for which I have no recipe), modifying a recipe I found online.

Ingredients

    Cinnamon oil, .5 tsp
    Nutmeg, ground, .25 tsp
    Cloves, ground, .25 tsp
    Allspice, .25 tsp
    *RealLemon Lemon Juice, 1.5 Tbsp (or the juice from 1/2 lemon)
    Apple, Gala (medium), 18 serving (5.5 lb package from Costco)
    Granulated Sugar, 2 cup
    Brown Sugar, 2 cup, unpacked
    Water, tap, .5 cup

Directions

Peel, core, and dice apples. Add apples and all other ingredients to crock pot. Cook on high for 4 hours. The apples should be soft and squishy at this point. Mash up with a potato masher (or an immersion blender!). Continue to cook on low for about 2 hours.

(I thought the recipe came out a little runny - I might cut back on liquid next time. I also thought it was too sweet, so next time I'll drop at least a half-cup from each type of sugar. Also, the cinnamon oil was stronger than I thought it would be - I could cut back on that, too)
