Applebutter -EASY

With it being that time of year for all things fall and cozy. Applebutter always hits the top of my list. The smell of apples and cinnamon throuout the house and then warm applebutter on a slice of toast just makes the day. This is a really super easy recipe for Applebutter.
Start with 12 cups of unsweetened applesauce (I make my own sauce first or you can purchase it at the store to save some time)
Pour into a large ceramic crockpot.
Add 6 cups of sugar (+- depending on how sweet your apples are, I usually use only 4 Cups)
Add 2-3 tsp. cinnamon
Mix well and leave in an open crockpot at least 12 hours on high. Stirring occassionally.
Check with spoon to see if it is done, by dipping spoon into crockpot and seeing if it sticks to the spoon. Applebutter will get very dark colored.
Put into glass jars and Cold water bath process for 20 minutes.

This makes great gifts for any occassion and it really is easy to mix and walk away(except an occassional stir) until it is time to put into jars.

Have fun trying an old favorite!
