Whiskey Apple Butter
For this recipe, I wanted to emphasize the natural flavor of the apples and used Ginger Gold for sweetness. If you choose a tart apple, you may want to add additional sugar.
Wash apples, core, and cut into cubes (leaving the skins on).
Place them in a crockpot on high for approximately 4 hours, stirring every hour.
When apples have turned to a thick applesauce, carefully pour into a blender or food processor, blend until smooth.
Add spices and whiskey, blend to mix.
Wash and dry the crockpot.
Pour apple mixture back in the crockpot and cook on high another 1-2 hours to reduce to desired consistency. I prefer a thicker butter, so I cooked for an additional two hours.
Pour into a mason jar and cool.
