  • 12 apples medium, 4 each of Granny Smith, Gala, and Honeycrisp , peeled, cored, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 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 half-pint or pint jelly jars, leave about 1 inch headspace at the top to allow for expanding. Cover with lid and freeze or refrigerate. Will make 4 half-pint jars.


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.
