All Day Apple Butter

Apple Butter anyone?      

You will need

5 1/2 lbs apples, peeled and finely chopped
4 cups sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

Place apples in a 3 quart cooker.    Combine sugar, cinnamon, clover and salt; pour over apples and mix well.    Cover and cook on high for 1 hour.

REduce heat to low; cover and cook for 9-11 hours or until thickened and dark brown, stirring occasionally (stir more frequently as it thickens to prevent sticking).

Uncover and cook on low 1 hour longer.   If desired, stir with a wire whisk until smooth.   Spoon into freezer containers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace.    Cover and refrigerate or freeze.

Yield:  4 pints.

How do you eat your apple butter???
