Cranberry Apple Butter just makes me happy! 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.
Cranberry Apple Butter
Cranberry Apple Butter Ingredients
- Apples – Peeled and sliced. I like to use Red Delicious, but you can use whatever type you love.
- Cranberries – You’ll want to use fresh cranberries or fresh/frozen cranberries.
- Orange juice – Fresh orange juice or from concentrate, either is fine.
- Vanilla extract – Make sure you’re using real vanilla extract and not imitation.
How do you make cranberry apple butter? (Step-by-step)
⭐ First, add all ingredients to your slow cooker and cook on low.
⭐ Next, give it a stir, then use your immersion blender (or very carefully use your upright blender) and puree it until smooth.
⭐ Finally, 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).

Tools we love
- Stick blender – Possibly the most used gadget in my entire kitchen. The key to making a hand blender useful versus a giant pain in the butt is to rinse it immediately after using. That way you’re never trying to get crusty dried goop out from under the blades.
- Instant Pot electric pressure cooker – Hey there working parent! It’s me! Also a working parent! Can we talk about how hard it is to get a healthy dinner on the table during the week? So. Hard. Well, Imma tell you – this electric pressure cooker, and my gas grill are the saving graces in our home. A delicious roast with carrots and potatoes in 45 minutes? Yes, please! You’re seriously going to love this one!
