Maple Bourbon Apple Butter

Added by: on Sep 30th, 2013
This wonderful spread will start your day off with a bright burst of flavor. Sweet and only slightly tart, it elevates popovers to a new level and is wonderful added to pancake or waffle batter. The bourbon lends a richness to the finished apple butter without tasting of liquor.

Combine all of the ingredients in a slow cooker set to high. Once an hour stir the apple butter scraping down all the sides and bottom of the slow cooker. Repeat this process for 4-5 hours or until the mixture is very thick and dark. To tell when the apple butter is done, drop a small spoonful of it on a plate and wait a minute or two. When the apple butter is done, a liquid ring will no longer ooze to the outside of the drop of apple butter; it will stay solid. Store in the refrigerator. Or, to can, carefully pour into in sterilized jars and process for ten minutes in a hot water bath.
