Make Crockpot Apple Butter With Your Extra Harvest!

This is a beautiful little recipe for apple butter. It’s made in the crockpot, overnight preferred. It develops a rich taste that you’ll absolutely love!




  1. Set your crockpot to high. Peel and chop the apples into 2″ chunk, then add to your crockpot.
  2. Pour the apple cider over the apples.
  3. Add the sugar and spices on top of the apples.
  4. Put the lid on let cook for an hour, stir. Cook for 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Turn the crockpot to low and cook for another 8-12 hours. Stir occasionally. The last hour leave the lid off.
  6. Cool and run through a blender to smooth it up. You can process this in a water bath (see a canning guide) or just refrigerate in jars.


Try to mix the apple type – I think it made the taste tremendous! I cooked mine a little longer and thought for sure it would be strong in taste. Once it was blended and refrigerated, it was perfect.
