Apple Butter

Apple Butter


  • 3 lbs. Apples
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Core and chop the apples and place them in the bowl of your slow cooker. Add in the cinnamon, ginger, cloves and water then cover and cook on low for 6 hours, or until the apples are tender enought to fall apart with a fork
  2. To make applesauce, use an immersion blender to puree the cooked apples. (If you chose to peel your apples, you can just use a fork or potato masher to break down the apples.)
  3. Loosely cover the pot with the lid, leaving a vent for steam to escape, and set the slow cooker to cook for another 4 – 6 hours on low, or until the applesauce has reduced by nearly half
  4. Once the apple butter is nice and thick, transfer it to a glass jar and store it in the fridge for up to two weeks. (You can also freeze any extra for a longer shelf life


This makes your house smell incredibly good!

When I placed the applesauce back in the crockpot for the second time it started to get a little crispy on the edges at about 4 hrs. so be sure to watch it to make sure you don’t overcook it
