    Easy Homemade Slow Cooker Apple Butter Recipe

    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

    • 8 apples
    • 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon of cloves
    • 1 teaspoon of allspice
    • 1 cup of sugar
    • 1/2 cup of honey

    Directions

    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.
    10. Turn the slow cooker on low.
    11. Heat for 4 to 6 hours or until the apple butter thickens. Stir occasionally.
    12. Allow the apple butter to cool.
    13. Can the apple butter or store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
