Delightful Apple Butter

Janet Scott


This recipe is simmered in a crock pot for a total of 24 hours. I have been told that it's not as sweet as they are used to and others say it's just perfect, not too sweet.

How to Make Delightful Apple Butter


  • 1Peel, core and slice your apples. Hopefully you have a fancy gadget that does it all for you. Fill your crock pot clear to the top where the lid just about sits on top of all the apples.
  • 2**** I use crock pot liners, helps with the mess and works fabulously ****

    Pour your apple cider on top and cook on low for 14 hours.
    I usually like to do it just before I go to bed.
  • 3After 14 hours, ladle your apples in a food processor a little at a time and puree. You will need to have a bowl to place the finished product as you go
  • 4After all is pureed, place your product back into your crock pot.
  • 5Add your sugar and spices, stir to blend and cook for another 10 hours.
  • 6Now your ready to start canning!
  • 7These make wonderful gifts. Have fun!!!!
