All-day Apple Butter

5 1/2 pounds apples, peeled and finely chopped
4 cups sugar
2-3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt

Place apples in crock pot. Combine sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Pour over apples and mix well. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 9-11 hours or until thick and dark brown, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook on low for 1 hour longer. Spoon into freezer containers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. If not freezing, cover and refrigerate.
Yield: 4 pints
