It’s fall and my whole family loves this Apple Butter Recipe. We really like to have quick and easy breakfasts for school days. One of my kiddos favorite easy breakfast ideas is Apple Butter lathered on top of Toast or English Muffins. In the past I always purchased store bought apple butter for them. Store bought Apple Butter can be very pricey when you have kiddos that use as much Apple Butter as mine, ha ha. So this Apple Butter Recipe is going to save me some $$’s this fall.
Slow Cooker Apple Butter Recipe
This Apple Butter Receipe takes a bit of time to cook (just like our Slow Cooker Applesauce) but the flavors and smell of apples and cinnamon in your home make it worth the wait.
If you see a great deal on apples, purchase yourself a bunch and make some delicious homemade Apple butter. Ten grab yourself some sugar, cinnamon and a few spices and that’s all you will need.
3 lb Apples
1 cup Sugar
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Cloves
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Salt
Core peel and chop apples.
Place in slow cooker.
Mix together remaining ingredients and pour over apples.
Cook on high for 1 hour.
Reduce to low and cook for 10-12 hours until mixture turns dark brown.
Use immersion blender to remove lumps or preocess in blender in batches.
Leave uncover cooking for 1-2 hours until mixture thickens.
Allow to cool.
Transfer to airtight containers and store in refrigerator.
I have not stored our Apple Butter for very long as my kiddos consume it as quick as I can make it. I would assume that you could store this in the refrigerator for weeks.
