ABOUT 6.5 lbs of apples-cored-sliced
-I am not sure what kind I used, they were a mix of tart and sweet
-I did not peel them all the way-only the bruises and bugs
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves
- I did not have these, so I put in 3 cloves and just took them out...
1/4 teaspoon salt
Put all that in the crock pot for I would say 8-10 hours, walk away and check on it later!
when it is all cooked down-add 1 tablespoon of real vanilla extract
-stir in and WALK AWAY
Come back 1-2 hours later and blend that awesomness up. I used my ninja-it was a pain, then I used my mother-in-laws immersion blender and broke it...back to Ninja (MAN I NEED A VITAMIX!!)
