Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter


Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter



This Apple Butter was one of the first recipes I posted on my site in 2008 (when I only had two kids!).  I perfected it for a few years and came back with the recipe you see here in 2011 (when I only had three and a half kids!).  I'm happy to say that I stand by the recipe in it's current form and we enjoy it so much every fall.  I keep saying I'm going to try it with no sugar at all (I mean, apples are naturally sweet, right?) but always chicken out because I love this recipe so much as it is.  My favorite thing to make with the finished apple butter is Apple Butter Swirled Pancakes.  I hope you'll give them a try!

[original text] I've been making Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter for a few years now, and I think I've finally found perfection. This recipe is so simple and delicious, no one will believe you when you tell them it only takes three ingredients! So let's give a warm welcome to cool Autumn - grab a biscuit, some hot cider, and join me for a jar of this fantastic apple butter.

Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter Ingredients:

  • 15 medium/large Red Delicious apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter Directions:

  1. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl and place in crock pot.
  2. Cook on high for 2 hours, then low for an additional 6 to 8 hours. Remove the lid and stir during the last hour of cooking to thicken.
  3. Blend with an immersion blender or in your upright blender to make smooth and buttery (be careful, it will be scalding hot!).
  4. Serve warm with biscuits, pancakes, over vanilla ice cream, or just with a spoon!
yields about 72 ounces

    1. I have frozen some before! Thaws overnight in the fridge, just stir back in any water that might come to the top!

  6. Am going to try this recipe out soon, but I was wondering what method of canning you used to store.
    I am new to canning, so would it be the bath method or the pressure method.

    Thanks.
