Apple Butter from Apple Sauce

Pin It
I finally got my sis-in-law to share her crockpot apple sauce recipe but never got a chance to try it. I have more apples downstairs to can but also about 6 cases of apple sauce quarts. That's all from last year. So I wondered if I could take the sauce and make it into butter. It seemed like the first part of the recipe was simply making sauce anyway soooo.....
I took 2 quarts of my homemade apple sauce tweak her recipe found HERE and 

Here is what I added to my apple sauce:
1 cup apple juice
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 ground cloves (optional)
1 tablespoons lemon juice
Then just let it cook on high in the crockpot until it was thickened to the consistency I wanted. I did mine for about 6-8 hrs. 
Yummy, easy apple butter. AND the best part was how yummy the house smelled while it was simmering....Spread it on whole grain bread and hmmmm,
