Really easy and delicious! My family loves it! My little nephew found out I brought him a jar and he started jumping up and down and hugging me with LOTS of THANK YOU'S!!! (=

pinch tips: How to Core and Slice an Apple



15 Min


14 Hr


Slow Cooker Crock Pot


50 oz
apple sauce - unsweetened
3 lb
granny smith apples - peeled, seeded, and diced
4 c
1 c
apple cider
2 tsp
1 tsp
all spice
1 tsp
ground cloves

Directions Step-By-Step

prepare all ingredients and put in crock pot - cook on low with lid on for about 10 hours. I cooked this overnight as it doesn't need any tending to.
After the 10 hours stir and remove lid and cook for another 4 hours with the lid off. This removes the liquid from the apple butter. Keep cooking and stirring occasionally. When a wooden spoon stands up in the middle of the apple butter without falling over it is done.
I bought a flat (12 jars) of half pint jars and canned them using the water bath method and I got 9 jars. But if you do not can it then it will need to be frozen or refrigerated.
