5 1/2 lb apples, peeled and finely chopped
4 cup sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Place apples in a slow cooker. 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 thickened and dark brown, stirring occasionally (stir more frequently as it thickens to prevent sticking). Uncover and cook on low 1 hour longer. If desired, stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Spoon into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Cover and refrigerate or freeze.
