When I say this is easy it does not take away from the taste and texture of this yummy apple butter. We have apple trees on our property that produce lots of apples every 2 years. So I am always looking for a way to preserve them. I created this recipe from looking at several others. I've been told that it is the best apple butter that anyone has tasted.

How to Make Very Easy Crockpot Apple Butter

Step-by-Step

  1. This is a 24 hour process. First peel, core and quarter your apples. (I use a variety Granny Smith, Johnathans or Gravesteins) Fill your crockpot 3/4 full with the apples.
  2. Add the vanilla and cook on low over night.
  3. Next morning take a potatoe masher or spoon and mash the apples, then add the sugars and spices and mix well.
  4. Cook 6 to 8 hours on low until nice and thick. Take a wooden spoon around the sides of the crockpot every so often.
  5. Place in hot half pint jars, wipe rims, and process 5 minutes in a boiling water bath. This will make about 6 to 7 half pints.
  6. I will post pictures of my jarred apple butter in a few days.
