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
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!
