SWEET POTATO BUTTER ~ for Type Os



(Makes 2 – 10 ounce – jars)

    3 cups peeled sweet potatoes, cut into slices about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick
    1 cup unsweetened apple juice
    1 tablespoon molasses
    1 teaspoon cinnamon or to taste
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 pinch salt
    Zest of 1 lemon
    Honey or maple syrup to taste

Combine all ingredients in a 1 or 1 1/2 quart slow cooker and stir well to combine
 
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the sweet potatoes are completely cooked and soft.

Using an immersion blender, blend everything together in your slow cooker until smooth.

Stir in honey to taste.

Note: You can do this in a larger slow cooker, but you will need to double or triple the recipe depending on the size of your slow cooker. A slow cooker should be at least 1/2 full in order to cook the food in it properly.
