Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Butter

I could eat holiday food from September through December and be happy as a clam.  I don't know what it is about turkey and cranberry sauce, but I just absolutely love it.  Who has the time though to make that much turkey, though?  Not me.  So when I was invited to work with Marie Callender's and create a recipe to go alongside one of their pot pies, I was so excited to hop down the aisle at Walmart and find a Turkey Pot Pie!!!  I knew right away I would make a cranberry dish.


Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Butter



The turkey pot pies taste like homemade and are Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner all wrapped up neatly into a golden, perfectly flaky crust.  There's no muss, no fuss, and practically no time commitment at all - and my Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Butter is the perfect addition.  I like to spoon mine right on top of the golden flaky crust and mix it all together.  Mmmmm.  It's also delicious on biscuits, pancakes, and over ice cream or yogurt!

Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Butter, Ingredients:


  • 4 pounds of apples (I used Red Delicious), cut but not peeled
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon real vanilla extract


Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Butter, Directions:


  1. Add all ingredients to your slow cooker (I used a 7 quart), and cook on low for about ten hours (overnight is fine).
  2. Give it a stir, then use your immersion blender (or very carefully use your upright blender) and puree it until smooth.
  3. If it's at the consistency you like, then congrats! you're done! If you like it thicker, then continue to cook uncovered on low for an additional 1 - 3 hours (stirring occasionally).
  4. Enjoy!
