In a 4-quart or larger slow cooker, combine peaches, sugar, butter, lemon juice, vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves; mix well. Cover and cook on low heat 7 to 8 hours or on high heat 3 to 4 hours, or until peaches are soft.
Stir in tapioca and continue to cook uncovered 45 to 60 minutes or until mixture is thickened.
Pour into canning or mason jars (or a dish with a cover) and allow to cool. When cool, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
