Course: Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 pints
  • 12 cored, peeled, and chopped apples (fill the slow cooker)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon red hots
  1. Start by filling your slow cooker with your apples. Cover in sugar, cinnamon, cloves, salt, and red hots. Cook on high for 1 hour. Lower heat and continue cooking for an additional 3 to 4 hours. Run through a blender until smooth. Place back in the slow cooker and cook for the remainder of the day (total cooking time about 9 hours). In the evening fill mason jars and seal. Keep in mind it will thicken as it cools. It will keep safely about two weeks in the refrigerator.
