Crock Pot Apple Butter

I ran across a blog called, A Year of CrockPotting, where every day for a year she is making something using her crock pot. One of the recipes on there was for apple butter. At our house we all love apple butter (well except for one). This was so easy to make and so delicious. Here is the recipe:

About 25 small apples or 14 large apples cored and sliced (you can leave the skin on or take it off) I used Gala apples.
1 T vanilla
Put the apples and vanilla in a crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.

Then add in 3/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp cloves. Stir and cook for 6 more hours on low. Next transfer in small batches to a blender to get a nice consistency. (Even if you leave the skins on they will blend easily.) This makes a lot, you can keep it in the refrigerator for a month.

This apple butter is so good. We are having a lot of biscuits so we can eat our apple butter.
