How to Make Crockpot Apple Butter

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray crock-pot lightly with cooking spray. Place the prepared apples in crock-pot.
  2. In separate bowl mix the sugar, cinnamon, salt and other desired spices. Stir into the apples to combine mixture thoroughly in crock-pot.
  3. Cover and cook on high for one hour. Turn heat to low and cook for approx. 7 - 8 hours more, stirring occasionally. Apple butter mixture should be thick and golden brown.
  4. Taste for sweetness, since apples vary in sweetness, you may want to add a little honey at this point to achieve desired sweetness.
  5. Cook for one hour more, uncovered. At this point, whisk the apple butter for a smooth creamy texture.
  6. Apple Butter can be stored covered in refrigerator or frozen in plastic freezer containers.
