  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Peel and cut apples into small chips. Place all ingredients in the crock pot and stir. Cover and cook on low overnight (eight to ten hours).

Pour into jars and refrigerate (unless it is canned properly).  I put the butter we won’t eat right away into quart-sized freezer bags and freeze them until we’re ready for more!
