Easy Homemade Slow Cooker Apple Butter Recipe

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. One of my favorite parts of the season is apples. I have two apple trees in my yard, so I get plenty of homegrown apples each fall. One recipe that I love making for my family is apple butter. My homemade recipe is super easy to make in a slow cooker.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon of cloves
  • 1 teaspoon of allspice
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of honey

  1. Wash and slice the apples. Do not remove the skins.
  2. Place the apple slices in a large pot and cover with water.
  3. Cook the apples over medium-low heat until the apples are soft and the water has boiled off.
  4. Allow the cooked apples to cool slightly.
  5. Transfer cooked apples to a blender.
  6. Blend until smooth.
  7. Combine the cinnamon, cloves, allspice, sugar, and honey in a slow cooker.
  8. Add the apples to the slow cooker.
  9. Stir the apple and spice mixture thoroughly.
