Apple Butter

Cut up apples, add water, and cook until mushy. Strain. Put pulp in slow cooker, add sugar (couple of cups, depends on sweetness of apples). I also used some spices in small amounts: cinnamon, cloves. I left it in the slow cooker overnight, put the lid on wooden spoons to allow the steam to escape, and thereby reducing the mixture, turned it on high this morning so it would come up to a boil. Then used a water bath to can. (I also used some crabapples from our tree out in front of our house; I like the color)
