 CrockPot Apple Butter

Crock Pot Apple Butter

Makes a little more than 1 pint

1 dozen apples, peeled, cored, cubed

1/2 Cup Water

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon All Spice

Step 1:

Peel, Core, and Chop a dozen apples. I used apples from our trip to the Apple Orchard. I’m no apple expert, but these apples were more dense than the apples I typically buy in the grocery store. The flavor was great, but it took longer to break down in the Crockpot.

Step 2:

Toss the apples in the sugar and spices.

Step 3:

Put everything in the Crockpot, then [say it with me] Set It, and Forget It!

anyone else remember that infomercial?

I cooked it on Low overnight and woke up to this…

After a few more hours on low, I bumped it to high and propped the lid.

it cooked down and thickened quite a bit.

Step 4:

I suppose it’s optional, but I decided to blend the butter down smooth. You can eat it right out of the Crockpot, I did. I just took a spoon to the Crockpot and dove in, it was divine. However, for the finished product I wanted it smoother and pulled out my Magic Bullet since I don’t own an immersion blender. Then poured it into clean canning jars.

So after 15 hours and a dozen apples picked right from the tree, I had 1 pint of delicious apple butter. I froze half the batch and have the other half in the fridge just waiting to be eaten…maybe straight from the jar.

I am going to try this this Fall! My grandma used to make THE best apple butter and I have never been able to find one like it, and my Mom doesn't remember how to make it.

I've never made it, so hopefully it will be close. My Grandma's was always a bit darker and thicker than most I've tried (maybe dark brown sugar, I don't know). I guess I might have to experiment a bit before I get it close, but am glad I found this recipe, so I can try! Thanks!

I think it says she canned half of her batch. My Grandma always canned hers.
