Apple Butter

So a few weeks ago we went to Springdale and picked these.....

And decided to make applebutter for the first time :)


6 apples (depending on the size.. I used 8 smaller/medium apples)

1 1/2 cups apple cider (or apple juice)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt

Peel, core and chop apples, add to slow cooker. Add cider/juice, sugar and spices. Cook on high until bubbly. Reduce heat to low and cook 6-8 hours, stirring every hour. When done, the apple butter will have thickened and be a deep brown color.  For a smoother texture, blend to break down any remaining chunks of apple. Either refridgerate imediately and use within a month or two.  OR you can, can it in a boiling water bath.


This is such an easy recipe I found on baking on the side.  I originally was going to do an oven recipe that I've had sitting with my recipes for years and just have never tried.  That process would have taken a complete FULL day with MOST of my attention.  With two little boys crawling around I did not have that option.  So Crock pot came out again :)  and it was super easy and tastes amazing.  Plus it made the house Smell delicious!  ENJOY!
