    Apples, peeled, cored, and cut into large sections. (enough to fill your Crockpot to the top)
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 tbsp vanilla
    2 tsp lemon juice


Fill Crockpot with prepared apples.
In separate bowl combine and stir, 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1 cup of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. (reserve the rest of the sugar for later)
Pour sugar and spice mixture over apples.
Turn Crockpot onto low and cook apples for 10 hours. After first 1-2 hours gently stir in the sugar mixture to coat the apples.
Leave it and forget it now. At this point I let mine cook overnight
After 10 hours take lid off and stir. Your mixture will be very dark and cooked down by about half the capacity of your Crockpot.
Stir in lemon juice, and vanilla.
At this point taste your apple butter for sweetness. I had tart firm apples and they needed more sugar, so I then added the additional 1/2 cup of granulated and 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar. You can adjust accordingly to your taste and the apples you are using.
Let apple butter continue to cook for 1-2 hours with lid off to absorb more liquid and make apple butter thicken more.
At the end of the cooking time, smooth apple butter with an emulsion blender.
Spoon into clean pint jars, and cover tightly with jar lid and ring. Be sure to leave room at the top of the jar if freezing.
