Slow Cooker Apple Butter

  • Cooking Time:

    12 hours
  • Servings:

    4 pints

Ingredients

5 lbs. of your favorite apples - peeled, cored and cut into 1" pieces
2 c. Sugar
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves
1 T. Lemon Juice

 

  1. Place the apples in the slow cook­er.
  2. Sprin­kle lemon juice over top apples.
  3. Com­bine the sug­ar, cin­na­mon, and cloves in a small bowl. Mix well.
  4. Add the sug­ar mix­ture into the slow cook­er and stir.
  5. Cov­er. Cook on high 1 hour.
  6. Reduce heat to low and cook 9 to 11 hours, stir­ring occa­sion­al­ly, until the mix­ture is thick­ened and dark brown.
  7. Uncov­er and con­tin­ue cook­ing on low 1 hour. Stir with a whisk, if desired, to increase smooth­ness.
  8. If desired, use am immer­sion blender to puree the apple but­ter.  (I pre­fer mine chunky though!)
  9. Spoon the mix­ture into con­tain­ers, cov­er and refrig­er­ate or freeze.

Note: Great to make dur­ing the hol­i­days for gifts! This is for sure one of my favorites.

Wendy, you cer­tain­ly could but you also can buy reg­u­lar cloves and grind them in a spice grinder! I find that my spices are much fresh­er if I do this!

What kind of apples would work best. My guess is Granny Smith, but I’m not used to mak­ing any­thing with apples. A lit­tle guid­ance would be appre­ci­at­ed. Thanks!

Can you can this type of apple but­ter or can you only refrig­er­ate or freeze it?

Can this be put in mason jars and “canned” using a boil­ing-water method?

Yes, you can use a hot water bath method to pre­serve it also. The can­ning book I have said to process it for 10 min­utes.

I LOVE your site!! I can’t wait to try all of these. There are just so many!! With my hus­band and I both work­ing you might have just saved my san­i­ty. I can save soooo much time using your recipes and less time rush­ing up a meal.

after that is done, can you give them a water bath, to store them, or does it have to be put in fridge? how long in the can­ner?

This was won­der­ful! I end­ed up adding more cin­na­mon and cloves and added a dash of nut­meg at the end. Will def­i­nite­ly make again!
