I love recipes where you can make sev­er­al batch­es at once, store extras in Mason jars and give as gifts, or save for a lat­er date! This recipe for Slow Cook­er Paleo Apple Date But­ter is exact­ly that! A thought­ful gift for friends, teach­ers, Postal Work­ers, any­one!

  3. After cook­ing time, remove mix­ture from crock and place in food proces­sor or blender.
  4. Blend until smooth, in batch­es, if nec­es­sary.
  5. Store in jars to cool, then refrig­er­ate.
  6. Spread over Paleo bread, crack­ers, scones or use as a fruit dip.

Since you can make sev­er­al jars at a time, can this recipe be water-bath canned to pre­serve on the shelf? (prob­a­bly a sil­ly ques­tion, but I’m pret­ty new to canning.…I’ve canned just one oth­er recipe, but this one intrigued me b/c of the dates…)

Thanks for any insight!


What would you change if I just want­ed to make apple but­ter? With­out the dates..
