I've spent the last three days on this! Gathering, preparing and cooking, then canning.
The taste is spectacular, and I thought I'd share my recipe:
8 lbs apples, washed and quartered (I also used destemmed crab apples)
2 c apple cider vinegar
2 c water
4 c packed brown sugar
4 tbsp pumpkin spice blend
2 tsp vanilla
The apples, vinegar, and water go into the crockpot, set on low for 12 hours.
At twelve hours use an immersion blender to blend it smooth, then put it through a strainer to take out any seeds and large chunks of skin.
At this point add in your brown sugar, spices, and vanilla and let cook down for another ten hours , with the lid propped up by a chop stick to allow water vapor to escape.
Can in clean jars, and water bath for fifteen minutes
