Directions:
1. Place apples in 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in sugar and spices.
2. Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 4 hours. Stir. Uncover and cook on high-heat setting 2 to 2 1/2 hours more or until apples are very tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Cool mixture at least 1 hour or cover and chill overnight. Process with an immersion blender or run mixture through a food mill.*
3. Ladle apple butter into half-pint freezer containers, leaving a 1D2-inch head space. Seal and label. Store up to 3 weeks in refrigerator or up to 1 year in freezer. Makes 4 half-pints.

*Note: Mixture also may be processed, half at a time, in a blender or food processor. Mixture processed this way will be slightly lighter in color and thinner in consistency. (I actually just used a potato masher at the end of cooking and it mashed it into a great consistency)
