Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

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 Old Fashioned Buttermilk Biscuits. 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.
