Easy Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Butter
I originally shared this recipe for Slow Cooker Apple Butter back in October of 2013 when I only had one baby and we had an abundance of fresh apples every Fall from our apple tree.
Fast forward seven years and we’ve moved to a new location with no mature apple trees and now have three babies. Oh how time flies.
Anyway, enough reminiscing, this recipe is so easy and delicious and was in dire need of a refresh in order for new readers to discover it’s goodness.
I know it’s not apple season at the moment, but if you find yourself with a few over ripe apples in the refrigerator, then you may want to whip of a batch of this amazing apple butter.
Of course if you’re reading this in the fall, get out that crockpot and start cooking up some of this homemade deliciousness!
My favorite way to eat apple butter is on a homemade biscuit. Mmmmm. It’s seriously like heaven.
I used a 6 qt slow cooker for this recipe, if yours is a different size, you may need to adjust the amount of apples and sugar to fit your needs.
How to Make Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Butter:
Peel, core and slice apples. We used one of these apple peeler, corer, slicers:
Put apples and vanilla in slow cooker. Set on low for 8 hours. I left it overnight.
It should look like this in the morning:
Mash apples and mix in cinnamon and sugars. Continue cooking another 6 hours. Process in blender for a smooth consistency.
