This is the best recipe for Apple Butter that I have ever made. My Grandma taught me how to make this years ago. I remember her telling me that the Crockpot was the greatest invention ever and how she wished she could have had one all those years ago (before air conditioning). :) I am posting so that I will never lose it! I am not exactly sure on the exact yield - it's been a while since I've made this.
