Red-Hot Apple Butter Crock Pot

Red-Hot Apple Butter Crock Pot created by flower7

This can be made in the crockpot or on the stove.The stove is quicker, but you really need to watch closely for burning. You can use fresh apples if available, or use canned applesauce. If using fresh apples you'll need to peel,core and cook the apples until soft, then process in a food processor for a few minutes. The red hots give it a little kick.

    Has anyone tried making a half batch of this in a small crockpot? If so, how long would it need to cook? Also, how long will this keep in the refrigerator if I don’t do the water bath? Thanks!

    Very good! I also liked the suggestion in a review to add cider vinegar in the end.

    This was almost perfect, but it still needed something. I called my neighbor (age 97) and she said apple butter needs a little zing at the very end--the old-timers used cider vinegar, but she thought lemon juice would do. I put in 2 tablespoonfuls of cider vinegar and got the result I was looking for: old-timey apple butter. I used half sugar and half Splenda--fewer carbs but tastes delicious. Perfect, like the old-timers used to make.

    Oh we loved this! I will never bother to buy this in the store again! I used my own homemade applesauce. What a treat! I'm planning to make this to give in my holiday Christmas baskets! Thanks BB! Made for Everyday is a Holiday!
