Mmmm ... Apple Butter!

One of my favorites, but, I've never made any. Until yesterday. Why have I waited so long?

8 c. cored, chopped and unpeeled cooking apples
1 c. apple cider
1 c. sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. ground cloves

Combine apples and cider in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours. Grind in a food processor. Return pureed mixture to pot and add sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Cover and cook on low for 1 hour. Pour into hot sterilized jar and seal. 1 quart.
