Crockpot Apple Butter

Crockpot Apple Butter

(25 servings)    Printable Version
  • 6 pounds apples
  • 3 cups fresh apple cider
  • 2 and 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice (optional)
For this recipe, I've found that Macintosh, Cortland or Gala apples work the best.

This recipe makes about 5 pints of apple butter.

Wash apples and cut them in quarters. You don't need to peel or core them.

In large, heavy pot, cook the apples in 3 cups of cider over medium heat as you would for applesauce (don't add water). When the apples are soft, put them through a strainer. You should end up with about 13 cups of applesauce.

Cook the applesauce in a Crock Pot on high for 3 hours, then overnight on low.

In the morning, turn the Crock Pot to high again. Add the sugar and spices. Cook until your reach your desired thickness - usually about another 3 hours depending on your Crock Pot.

Serve with cottage cheese, pan-fried crispy scrapple or on toast. You can use this the same way you might use any jam or preserve.

This beats commercial apple butter by a mile! While the process isn't quick, I would classify it as being simple. The Crock Pot does most of the work.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank qcity for this recipe.
