Crockpot Apple Butter

If you enjoyed our Crockpot Baked Apples, then you'll definitely love this recipe too. This just might be one of the simplest things I've ever made, and you know me and simple recipes!


Crockpot Apple Butter
12 apples, peeled, cored, and cubed
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice

  1. Add ingredients to crockpot. Stir to incorporate.
  2. Cook on high for 10 hours, stirring occasionally and removing the lid for the last three hours of cooking. (Cook for additional time on low if apples are still watery.)
  3. Blend with an immersion blender.
  4. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the refrigerator. Freeze the rest to enjoy later.
Notes:
Water can be substituted for apple juice. Makes about 3, 1/2 pint jars of Apple Butter.
