Ingredients

  • 10 mixed apples
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 lemon juiced (about 2 tablespoons)

Instructions

Crockpot
  1. Slice the apples and remove the seeds. There’s no need to remove the peels for this recipe which saves a lot of time!
  2. Add the sugars, spices, and juice and stir it all together.
  3. Put on the lid and set it to low for 10 hours, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove the lid, use a hand blender or stand-up blender to blend it to a smooth consistency. You may have to do it in batches if you’re using a regular blender.
  5. Keeping the lid off, set the heat back to low (which may say 10 hours), set a timer, and cook for another 2 hours. Stirring occasionally.
  6. Turn off the heat and add the lemon juice and vanilla extract.
Stovetop
