6 lb. mixed apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (about 12 apples)

1/4 c. packed brown sugar

1/4 c. granulated sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

Add all ingredients to a bowl of a crockpot and toss to combine. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or until apples are deeply golden and falling apart. Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend apples until smooth. If using a regular blender, pause to remove lid every so often to let steam escape. Pour apple butter into jars and let cool to room temperature. Cover and store in refrigerator.
