Joe Wheeler EMC
3 pounds gala apples
3 pounds fugi apples
1 granny smith apple
6 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups granulated sugar
Remove cores from apples and chop into chunks (no need to remove skins) and place in a 6 qt crockpot. Combine rest of ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over apples and stir to coat. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour then low for 10 hour, stirring a couple of times throughout. Spoon mixture into a blender or food processor, leaving a vent open for steam to escape and blend to desired consistency. Allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate or freeze. Makes about 5 pints.

I adapted this recipe i found by reducing the sugar by half and using a mixture of different apples. I have been giving jars of this apple butter as Christmas presents for years and everyone loves it.
