Crockpot Apple Butter

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

I simply love my crock-pot. It helps me make up so many wonderful goodies. Crockpot butter is one of those recipes I love to make. Apple Butter is a traditional fall recipe here in our home. Living just a few miles from several apple orchards it is only right to enjoy all that we can. Apple butter taste great on toast, biscuits, pancakes or simply eat by spoonfuls. While preparing your apple butter in the crockpot your home will receive a yummy fall like smell. No need for potpourri when you have an aroma for that. 

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

You can use apples of your choice in this recipe. While Jonathon golden apples, gala, honeycrisp, granny smith or a combo of these work best. This recipe was used in a 2.5 quart cooker you can change the recipe as needed if using smaller or larger cooker. 

If you are planning on saving and storing apple butter or give as a gift be sure to put cans in boiling water bath. Find a tutorial  here.  Without canning, keep refrigerated and use within a month or two.
