Preparation Time15 min

Chilling Time3 hr

Slow Cooker Time LOW12 hr


  • 6 pounds apples
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (1 cup if you prefer it less sweet)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Peel and chop apples and place them in the slow cooker.

  2. Pour honey over the apples and toss to coat.

  3. Combine the spices and brown sugar and toss with apples and honey in slow cooker.

  4. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours (overnight works great).

  5. Stir in the vanilla extract and cook an additional 2 hours with the lid off.

  6. If you prefer your apple butter thick, keep cooking to reduce the liquid a bit.

  7. Turn off the slow cooker and let the apples cool for a few hours. Ladle the cooked apple mixture into the bowl of a food processor (an immersion blender or regular blender works). Process for 2 to 3 minutes or until very smooth.

  8. Pour into jars, add lids and store in the refrigerator for up to two week. Jars can also be frozen, just be sure to leave enough head space in the jar to allow for expansion.

Back in the day I remember my grandmother making Apple Butter and eating it on just about everything, but my favorite was on homemade muffins. There really isn't anything quite like it and I can't wait to making it myself. What is the storage time on it though? I had no idea a jar could be stored in the freezer...wouldn't it break?
