Apple butter is delicious on a variety of foods. We love it on everything from toast and pancakes to spice cake, and even pork! Mix it with Greek yogurt for a sweet, creamy dip. Try it with our delicious. We like to serve it for breakfast, in place of butter and other high-fat spreads.

- 12 medium apples (4 each of Granny Smith, Gala, Honeycrisp) peeled, cored, cut into 1" cubes
- Note: We like to mix the apples with tart Granny Smith & sweet apples like Gala & Honeycrisp. Other sweet apples Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, Red Delicious, Fuji, Ambrosia, and Spartan.
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon cloves
- Pinch kosher or sea salt
- 1/4 cup unrefined sweetener, more or less to taste (recommended: sucanat or coconut palm sugar or honey
Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add apples to the slow-cooker, pour dry ingredients over and toss to coat. If using, pour in honey and stir. Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours until tender and brown. If you prefer chunky apple butter, leave as is. For a creamier, less chunky butter, whisk until smooth.
Allow to cool to room temperature, add to 1/2 pint or pint jelly jars, leave about 1" head space at the top to allow for expanding. Cover with lid and freeze or refrigerate.
