Crock Pot Cranberry Apple Butter

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Antifreesz

This is from the "Cranberry Festival Recipes" booklet I picked up at the cranberry festival in Bordentown NJ (where one of the Ocean Spray facilities is located) many years ago. It was submitted by a woman from Vincetown NJ and is one of my favorite apple butters. I usually use the cranapple juice.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I seem to be on a kick what with making recipes that include cranberries, but I absolutely love those little red buggers, & since I've got bags & bags of frozen berries, this butter recipe gives me another great way of using them! Thank you for a great-tasting 'butter' & a new addition to my Holiday Gift Ideas cookbook! [Made & reviewed in Tag It RED!]
