Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

4 (1-lb 14-oz each) cans peaches or apricots, drained
3 to 4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves

Drain fruit and remove pits; puree fruits using blender or food strainer.  Pour into crock pot, Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on high 8-10 hours. Remove cover during last half of cooking. Stir occasionally.

Variation: Fresh peach or apricot butter: Wash, peel, pit and cook fruit until soft. Add sugar when cooked (using 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar to each cup of fruit). Add spices and cook as directed above.
