Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Making apple butter was almost as enjoyable as tasting the finished product. Slow cooking apples and spices made the entire house smell amazing. I think this recipe really captures the feeling of fall- enjoy!
  • Approx 14 apples, peeled and quartered (I used a mix of granny smith and a few sweeter varieties from the farmers market)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • approx 5-7 cloves
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar (adapt as needed depending on the sweetness of apples used)
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar (adapt as needed depending on the sweetness of apples used)
  • 1/2 cup of apple cider
Directions:
Peel and quarter apples, place in the slow cooker and pour in cider. Cook on low for approximately 5 hours. Check on the apples and stir, add spices and sugar and then cook for another 3-5 hours. When the apples have cooked down and turned golden brown, I used an immersion blender to get a smoother consistency. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing! With all the apple and pumpkin recipes going around, I was looking for a good apple butter one, and this sounds great. :) I keep baking muffins and cookies and breads to get my apple and pumpkin fix, but this sounds just a bit better on the waistline ;-)

This sounds amazing... and I love any recipe that consists of throwing things into a slow cooker. I'm totally making this over the weekend. Thanks!
