Apple Butter Directions
Spray crock-pot lightly with cooking oil to help with cleanup.

In separate bowl mix the sugar, cinnamon, salt and other desired spices. Stir into the apples to combine mixture thoroughly in crock-pot.
Cover and cook for one hour on high, then reset heat to low and cook for approximately 8 hours more, stirring occasionally. Apple butter mixture should be thick and golden brown.

Cook for one hour more, uncovered. At this point, blend/whisk the apple butter for a smooth creamy texture.
