slow cooker apple butter recipeNow that fall is starting to make an appearance, I want my house to smell warm and spicy.  Making a batch of slow cooker apple butter is the best way I know to permeate my home with the smells of fall.  Apple, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves make me want to put on a chunky sweater and watch football.  Well, almost.  How about me get comfy on the couch with a good book while the kids and my husband watch football.  That sounds better.

Apple butter is delicious spread on some toast, but also baked into cakes or muffins, on pancakes, even on vanilla ice cream.  Making apple butter in the slow cooker is my favorite way to make a fruit butter.  I think that the slow cooking really brings out the flavor of the spices.  If you like apple, try making my slow cooker pumpkin butter.

    Just wondering how you best preserve this – canning, freezing…? I’d love to make and give as a gift.

    Thanks for the great recipe! I was just trying to figure out what to do with all the apples we’ll be picking next weekend. A great apple butter AND my house will smell like fall? Sounds like a winner!

  5. I love apple butter… maybe it’s the PA Dutch in me. Anything homemade is always better and you can’t beat a quick recipe like this. Thanks for sharing with us!

  6. I bet you could also use this apple butter in an apple pie… yum… :)

    I had Apple Butter BBQ sauce from this Mom and Pop place up in Oregon and it was the BEST thing I have ever tasted! I’m gonna try to make some with some BBQ sauce and this recipe! Thank you! :)

    This looks incredible! I read your blog all of the time and at least one of your recipes is served at my house each week. I have yet to make anything I saw on here and not have it taste great.

    I am dying to try either this or the pumpkin butter….but – and I think I’m totally going against the grain here – do you know if there is any chance I can somehow adapt your slow cooker recipes to the oven or stove top? I don’t have a slow cooker because my husband and I are living in South America for a little over a year and there are none to be found in any stores around. (It’s too bad because I definitely could use the convenience of one.)

      Of course you can make it on the stove. I would simmer it for a few hours until the liquid evaporates. Keep an eye on it though.

    Bree–I found your site through Molly’s post on Sugar Rush And what a lucky find! Can’t wait to try some of your other things!

    I have a box full of plums and am trying to figure out what to do with them. Do you think plums could be used instead of apples in this recipe? I loved the apple butter! And do you have any other ideas for baking with plums?

    Maybe I’m slow on the uptake but there are no apples in the ingredients list. How many for the recipe?

    Okay, ignore the above comment. My phone just reset and the apples showed up in the ingredient list. Go figure. :)
