Easy slow cooker apple butter recipe with step by step instructions. Made with unsweetened canned applesauce, apple cider, cinnamon, cloves and allspice.
I’ll make this a quick one since life is a bit crazy right now for me. That means I’ve been on the search for easy recipes that can carry me through more than just that day. That’s why when my sister sent me her dear friend’s easy crockpot apple butter recipe, I knew I had to give it a try.
For starters, it makes your house smell amazing. Second, it’s makes enough to last you through the fall and then some. I decided to freezer can everything and I’m so glad I did. I know I’ll be able to enjoy it on warm toast for days to come.
To make this easy crockpot apple butter recipe you will need:
8 Cups unsweetened applesauce
2.5 Cups sugar
1 3/4 Cups apple cider
1 TB cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground allspice
Add all the ingredients to a medium sized crockpot. Stir and set on high uncovered for 8 hours. You can let it go longer if you like it thicker or for a shorter amount of time if you like it less thick.
After 8 hours my apple butter was nice and thick and delicious. Don’t be afraid to taste!
I turned off the crockpot and let it cool for awhile. After it was cool to the touch, I place the apple butter into 8 ounce jelly jars.
And that’s it! It’s so easy to make this apple butter and it makes a perfect gift. After they were cooled down, I placed a lid on the jars and placed them in a freezer. You can freeze them for up to a year.
