Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Butter

 

Slow Cooker Spiced Apple ButterThis recipe is easy to make. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker and let it go. It is great for small batches of apples and when you don’t want to spend all day canning.

You can make apple butter out of any apples, but if you can, it is always best to go with soft apples. They will cook down faster, and be ready to process sooner. I opt for a mix of apple varieties for the best flavor.

These are some of the best apples to use for this apple butter recipe:

Braeburn
Cortland
Crispin (Mutsu)
McIntosh
Fuji
Golden Delicious
Rome

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

Instructions for Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Butter

Combine all ingredients in a 6 quart slow cooker, stir until well combined.

Process pints in a water bath canner for 10 minutes (makes about 4 pints).

OR…Cover and chill for 8 hours. Can be stored in refrigerator for up to three weeks.

This recipe can also be made on your stove top over a very low heat. I would not advise leaving it over night. Stir often.
