How to make it

  • Peel and core the apples. Slice finely or puree in a food processor. Add apples and remaining ingredients to your crock pot.
  • Cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 8-10 hours. Remove lid (or crack it open a bit) and cook on high until a wooden spoon stands upright in it. The apple butter will have reduced by about half to get to this point. Blend if desired.
  • Fill sterilized jars with simmering apple butter and process for 15 minutes in a boiling-water bath.
  • Remove jars and let sit, undisturbed, overnight. Test the seals and refrigerate any jars that have not sealed completely. Fully sealed jars will keep for 18-24 months unopened. Once opened, the apple butter will keep for 2 months in the refrigerator, or indefinitely in the freezer.
