It’s officially fall! That means all the apple recipes! Today’s recipe is all things apple butter. I love apple butter is so sweet and it paired so well with a good piece of toast. This homemade crock-pot apple butter is especially perfect after a trip to the orchard when you have excess apples. What I loved about this recipe is that while it does take a while to cook, most of that time is in the Crock-Pot.
My personal opinion was that this recipe tasted great. The flavors were just right and not too much that it overpowered the apple taste. My husband was a huge fan and has had at least two pieces of apple butter toast a day! This is also the perfect recipe for those who are beginner cooks, it’s really not a challenging recipe and produces great results.
This recipe is not a canning recipe. There are specific things that have to be done to preserve the apple butter and this recipe does not do that. However, this does last a couple weeks if you make double or triple the recipe. The amount listed below is perfect for a small family that wants to have a couple days of apple butter(my single batch photos are below). For those with larger families or those who want to gift it, I would triple the recipe. When I did that it filled two mason jars completely. Which would be perfect for sharing or giving one away to friends!
Overall, if you are looking for a super easy crock-pot apple butter recipe, this is the one! If you do decide to try it, let me know below in the comments!
Overall Review: 5/5
Crock-Pot Apple Butter
- 6 Medium-Large Apples
- 1/2 cup Raw Sugar
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp Allspice
- Peel and dice all your apples and set in your crockpot
- Add raw sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Combine Well.
- Set crock-pot to high for 5 hours
- Use an immersion blender to blend until there are no apple chunks. I personally don't have an immersion blender so I had to transfer to a regular blender and puree that way.
- Once fully blended, put the crock-pot on high for 2 hours
- Transfer to some mason jars and use on all your favorite foods!
