Happy Fall Y’all!  It is finally here.  Apple Butter is the perfect recipe for celebrating the delicious apples we have abundantly this time of year. 

You could easily make this slow cooker apple butter on your stove but why bother when you could let your slow cooker do the work. 

You will need 4 pounds of apples, sugar, cinnamon, and allspice to make this fabulous apple butter.  I am going to show you step by step with pictures exactly how to make it.  

What is Apple Butter?

First of all, as you saw from the ingredients, apple butter contains no butter.  It is apples that have been cooked down low and slow until the apples are like applesauce but caramelized.  Apple butter is thicker and kicked up more than applesauce too. It is perfect for toast, bagels, biscuits, pork chops, or in oatmeal.  My favorite way to eat apple butter is to spread it on my warm apple fritters.

The next morning use your handheld immersion blender, and completely blend the apples until smooth and creamy.  If you do not have an immersion blender, allow your apples to cool and blend them in a food processor or blender.

  1. I will definitely be making this recipe. Normally we make homemade preserves to giveaway to coworkers during the holidays, but this year we wanted to do something a little more seasonal. I’ve never tried making apple butter (although it is one of my absolute favorites). I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  2. We just went apple picking last weekend and still have a ton of apples left over. Was going to make pies and more tomorrow with it. Now, I am adding your apple butter to my list of recipes to make with what we have left. So, thank you for this and seriously so excited to make this now! Hoping you are enjoying your weekend so far, Diane 🙂
