Sweet, rich and laced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves this apple butter is perfect as a topping on pancakes, scones, crumpets or English muffins.

I think this would be amazing as the filling in cinnamon buns or a couple of tablespoons added to a butter cake prior to baking.

For PEAR butter, swap apples for firm pears.

  • ·
    2 - 2 1/2 kilos (4 - 5 pounds) peeled, cored and chopped apples (i like a fuji's)
  • ·
    1 cup brown sugar
  • ·
    2/3 cup white sugar
  • ·
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ·
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • ·
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ·
    a pinch of salt
  • ·

How to Make Betty's Easy Apple Butter


  1. Place all the ingredients EXCEPT vanilla in your slow cooker (croc pot) which as been sprayed with oil spray. Place on a low setting and allow to cook for 10 - 11 hours, stirring only once. I leave mine to cook overnight.
  2. Add the vanilla and keep the lid off. Continue cooking for a further 2 hours, stirring regularly.
  3. Using a stick mixer, blend the mix until you've reached the desired thickness. I like mine super smooth but others prefer it to be slightly lumpy.
  4. Allow to cool for an 30 minutes and place into containers and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks OR freeze for up to 12 weeks.
