Spiced Apple Butter

READY IN: 18hrs 30mins
Recipe by Ms. Valeriah

I do this in a slow cooker and let it go for a long, long time. Gets a nice, carmelly flavor this way.

Absolutely wonderful apple butter, this! I made the whole batch, but didn't actually can it! Instead, it was packaged in 2-cup containers, & 3 of them were gifted to a couple of friends & my son & DIL! The 4th one was kept right here at home for the 2 of us to enjoy, & so far we've enjoyed it on muffins & pumpkin bread! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prep apples as directed, combine in slow cooker with apple juice (or cider), brown sugar and spices, cook overnight and into the next day if you can, stirring occasionally - 18 hours or so is optimal. You want the mixture to reduce down significantly. Once the apples are to more or less applesauce consistency, apply an immersion blender to puree the mixture to a velvety texture or put it through a food mill. Once the liquid no longer separates quickly after it's stirred, it's ready to jar up and process. Pour into sterilized jars, process in hot water bath for 10-15 minutes.
