Recipe: Crockpot Apple Butter

Yesterday, while in Trader Joe's, I decided to grab an apple tote to make apple butter.  Tonight, I plan to make healthy *almost paleo* muffins, using said apple butter.  Prior to this, I've only had Musselman's jarred apple butter which is tasty.
 
You can use apple butter on muffins, toast, pancakes, eggs & bacon, crackers, etc.  I bet it would be good on top of a water cracker with brie cheese!
 
12-15 medium sized apples; peeled, cored and cut into chunks
1/4 cup raw organic honey
2 tbsp agave nectar
2 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup water
 
Place apples in crockpot first and then pour the rest of the ingredients on top.  Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.  Mash the apples.  Cook on low for another 2 hours.  Mash some more and then blend in a food processor for 3 minutes.
 
This made 3 pints:
 
 
Enjoy!
