I almost threw away unwanted apples. But logic and reason brought me back to my senses. Phew, that was close. Apple butter always hides, well, everything.
Overnight Apple Butter
Makes about 4 pints
Wash, peel, core and chunk enough apples to fill a four-quart slow- cooker (about 5-6 pounds of apples)
3 cups sugar
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2 Tbsp cinnamon
this over the apples. Let stand with the lid on overnight. Then cook
in the slow-cooker for four hours on low. Cool and run through blender or leave chunky.
Don't peek, add water or even stir until it is finished cooking. If you have let it cool to blend it, reheat to simmer before ladling into jars. Water bath for 15
