Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter
My house smells wonderful today, because I have some tasty Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter cooking in the slow cooker. It smells so delightful! Even better than fresh-baked cookies. We love homemade crockpot apple butter on our morning toast, a great substitute for jelly or jam!
Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter is also something you can make in large batches and store in the freezer for later. When it’s finished cooking and you’ve pureed the apple butter, just place in sealed freezer containers or canning jars and store in the freezer until ready to use.
Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter Recipe
- 6 pounds of apples
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- a pinch or 2 of ground cloves
Peel, core, and slice all 6 pounds of apples.
After the apples are sliced, just toss them into the Crockpot, along with all the rest of ingredients and stir. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until apples are very soft, stirring every hour or two.
When the apples are cooked through, puree them in a blender or food processor. Depending on the size of your processor, you may need to puree in several batches. I recommend pureeing even if you're using applesauce so that the spices get blended thoroughly and the texture is smoother
Then just put it all in a container and put in the refrigerator or freezer. Or immediately slather generously on toast.
