Get out everything you will need:
Step 1: Make Applesauce.
Slice up your apples:
Cook the apples:
This is a PIA if you use the sieve thing that my friend and I used this go around.
Measure out your applesauce and dump 5 qts into your crockpot
Add 2 cups sugar, 2 tbsp Cinnamon, 1 tbsp cloves, 1 tsp Allspice, 1 container of concentrate juice (I used Apple) and 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Set the vented crockpot to 'low' or 'keep warm' and stir occasionally. You want to let it be vented so it will release steam and become thicker in the cooking process. I normally try to cook for 24 hours. In the cooking process, I will take some out of the crock and blend it to get nice and smooth and then return back to the cooking process.
When you are happy with the taste (you can always add more spices, ACV or sugar) then jar and refrigerate!
Don't forget to eat some while its warm!!!
* Note- I don't seal my jars, rather just keep them refrigerated! Keeps good for a couple months.
