Super Easy Crock Pot Apple Butter 5 pounds of apples (I usually use two bags of those small reddish apples) 3 cups of granulated sugar 2 tablespoons of apple pie spice (it comes in a small container in the spice section of foodlion) 2 tablespoons of cinnamon Peel the apples and chop them up pretty small. Toss them all into the crock pot and put it on high. Pour sugar and spices in on top of apples and stir to mix. You won't have to do anything else for hours except enjoy the great smell! About 4 - 5 hours later the apples should be soft (now is a good time to get a bowl of vanilla ice cream and try them as a hot topping --yum!!!). Take a whisk and stir the apple and sugar mixture and break up some of the remaining chunks with the whisk. I use those small jam jars and spoon the mixture into those until about a 1/4" from the top. Put the lid on and sit in the frig until they completely cool off, then stick in the freezer all the ones you plan to give away or keep for later! When it cools, the consistensy is like jam, perfect!! Really good on toast, biscuits and waffles. I think it would make a super gift with loaves of homeade bread!!! I do realize that this is not an "egg or chicken recipe"!!! someone PM'd me and asked for it --so I thought I would share with everyone, sorry it's out of place --maybe it can get by on this section becasue it goes so well with MissPrissy's Egg Bread!!!! edited to add that a splash of vanilla is awesome with this!!
