6 pounds medium apples, peeled and cored, then chopped or sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup packed Schnucks light brown sugar
3/4 cup Schnucks apple cider
1/2 cup Schnucks pure honey
2 teaspoons McCormick ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Schnucks ground cloves
1. Into 6-quart or larger slow cooker, add all ingredients and stir; cover and cook on low 12 hours, stirring one or twice if desired.
2. With immersion blender, puree apple mixture to smooth, buttery consistency. (If a thinner texture is desired, cook, uncovered, 1 hour longer).
If an immersion blender is not available, apple butter can be pressed through a fine mesh strainer or pureed in small batches in a food processor of blender.

6 Cortland apples cored and quartered
1 cup of cider
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup granola breakfast cereal
Place apples in a baking dish and pour cider over apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cover and bake at 350 degrees until apples are soft. Sprinkle cereal over the apples just before serving so it stays crunchy. Also yummy to top with your favorite yogurt.
