Crockpot Apple Butter


This recipe could not be simpler, you can literally cook it in your sleep!  We use it on English Muffins, and sometimes instead of jelly in PB & J.  IT also makes a wonderful Christmas gift for teachers!


Crockpot Apple Butter

Ingredients
  • About 3 to 4 lbs of apples- cleaned,  cored, and peeled
  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp nutmeg (dried ground)
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon  (dried ground)
  • 1/2 tsp cloves (dried ground)
Materials Needed:

1. Fill crock-pot with apples.  Add other ingredients & Stir until mixed.

2.  Cover and cook on low setting overnight, about 8 to 10 hours, until butter is spreadable consistency.  I put mine on about 9:00pm and stirred again before I went to sleep at 11:30pm.

3. In the morning, You can test the consistently by putting some on a spoon and letting it fall.  If the water separates from the apple, it isn't think enough. If there is still too much liquid take off lid of crock-pot and cook on high until thickened.

4.  Store for future use:
  • In fridge for 6 weeks
  •  In freezer for 6 months.  
  • Water bath Canning- 10 minute hot water bath, 1/4 inch head space.
