I'd never made apple butter before, but based on cursory internet research, it seemed to be just spiced, caramelized applesauce.
Which, I can now tell you, it is. I made it and it turned out great: melt-on-your tongue spiced apple!
My recipe took twelve hours of crock pot time and was very easy.
Step 1: Ingredients & Equipment
Spices- I used ginger, cinnamon, and clove
Brown sugar, if you want to sweeten it
