Slow Cooker Apple Butter


5 1/2 pounds Granny Smith apples

4 cups sugar

1 cup apple cider

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon mace


Core and cut the apples into small pieces. Put all the ingredients into a slow cooker and stir. Cover and cook on low overnight, about 8 to 10 hours. Remove the cover, stir and taste. Add more spices or sugar, if desired. Continue cooking for a few more hours, uncovered, until some of the liquid is reduced and the apple butter has cooked down a bit. Pour into sterilized jars and refrigerate or process the jars.
