Crock Pot Apple Butter Recipe

Last week, I was back on the farm with my family… along with 2 bushels of apples. So my 12 year-old niece, 11 year-old nephew and I decided to make homemade apple butter. It’s an easy recipe for kids to follow with a “grown-up” to supervise. We made a two large batches (one with less cinnamon). The recipe that we used required a food mill or a chinois sieve but I found this recipe from my grandma’s recipe book that just requires the use of a crock pot. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
