Overnight Crockpot Apple Butter

5 large apples, peeled, chopped

1 C dark brown sugar

juice from half a lemon

2 Tbsp water

1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp sea salt

0.5 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

- in a large bowl toss chopped apples with brown sugar, lemon juice and water to coat - place in crockpot and cook on low overnight

- the next morning, stir in pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla - cook 2 hours more with lid slightly ajar to allow steam to escape - jar and eat*

* I love apple butter dolloped on homemade granola, on pancakes or French toast, on ice cream, on cake, on toast or by itself with a spoon.
