Fall Treat

Apple Butter
7 cups unsweetened applesauce
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice

Combine in a crock pot and cook on low for 14-15 hours.

Pack while hot into 4 hot pint jars. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes after the water begins to boil again. Or refrigerate unprocessed jars until needed.

This is apple butter the easy way. It's not quite as thick as I might like, but the convenience of not having to stand at the stove (or over an open fire!) and stir for 5 hours straight makes up the difference!
