Slow Cooker Apple Butter

apple2-1560425I found this recipe when I was looking for something to do with all the apples I kept buying. I love apples and kept overbuying them in the hopes that someone else besides me would eat them. Instead they would go bad faster then I could cook them up. I tried making apple crisp, but I was also the only one eating that. Since I hate wasting food, I figured I would give this recipe a try. It had a long shelf life and was great to pretty up with some ribbon as a gift for others. Plus, it was yummy on toast. To me this is fall in a jar.fall-colors-1408536
