So - I used Granny Smith Apples from the grocery store. Maybe next year I'll use local apples.
Anyway, you must try this recipe! It is so delicious!!! We all had it on toast this morning for breakfast... YUM!
You will need:
5 lbs Apples - finely chopped
3 cups white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Add chopped apples to the crockpot. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
Cook on high for 1 hour - then turn to low for approx 6 - 8 hours. Stir occasionally.
Once it looks like it has cooked down enough, remove crockpot lid and cook for another hour until the right consistency.
(sorry about picture quality... I cheated and used my phone)
Scoop into clean jars and refridgerate. Don't forget to eat some on toast while it's still warm. You will melt, trust me. The toast is just the 'vehicle' to get this into your mouth as fast as you can.
You can also give to friends if you are willing to part with it.
Wouldn't one of your neighbors love to find a jar on their doorstep this holiday season? Maybe bring a jar for the host of an upcoming holiday meal?
EDIT: I should also tell you - you can store in the fridge for 3 months or in freezer for 6mths. OR if you want to "can" the jars - you would boil in a canner for 10 minutes. (10min at 15% pressure for a pressure canner)
Seriously.. give it a try. You will be happy you did. Pin It
