1. Combine all ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker, cover, and cook on low until apples are soft and break apart easily when pressed with a spoon, 8 to 10 hours. Using an immersion (or traditional) blender, puree until smooth.
2. Turn slow cooker to high, partially cover with lid, and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick and spreadable, 2 to 4 hours. Add more sugar to taste and let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
