How to make apple butter

Use a stick blender to puree the apple butter. If you don't have a stick blender, you can use a blender but be careful because the mixture is HOT. If you use a blender, puree small amounts at a time until all of the mixture has been pureed and then return the mixture to the slow cooker. Continue cooking on low, uncovered for another 2 or 3 hours until the mixture reaches the desired thickness.
