I love this time of year. All the colors, sights, smells, and of course the food! A good friend of mine, and new blogger, is here to share this slow cooker apple butter recipe. She's not kidding when she says you will enjoy how your house smells or how great this tastes!
Hello! I’m Megan and my blog is Essentially Megan. I am a work from home mommy of two boys with another on the way. Essentially Megan is about all the things that make up my world. I write about my family, friends, food, travel, and healthy living. Ashley and I have been like family for over 8 years. She is a huge reason I began my blog. When she asked if I’d be interested in doing a guest post I said absolutely.
Fall is here and with it cooler weather and delicious foods. One of my favorite things about Fall is the abundance of apples and apple festivities. Sometimes there are more apples than we know what to do with. What should you do when you have an abundance of apples? Make homemade apple butter.
Slow Cooker Apple Butter
- 6 lbs of assorted apples-cored, peeled, and diced
- 1 c white sugar
- 1 c firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tbs of apple cider or apple cider vinegar
- 1 ½ tbs of ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp of nutmeg
- ¼ tsp of allspice
- ¼ tsp of salt
- Put all ingredients in a crockpot, stirring to get apples coated.
- Set crockpot to low for 10 hours stirring every couple of hours to avoid anything sticking.
- Enjoy the wonderful smell in your home.
- Remove lid and cook on low for an additional 1 ½ -2 hours. You can leave it longer if it still looks watery.
- Blend to desired consistency.
- Recipe yields 6 half pint jars. Can these if you know how or give them away as gifts.
Oh My word the smell of apples cooking in a crock pot is heaven. I am so making this for us this weekend. Son loves apple butter.
Ben and I used to go apple picking, but we stopped because we didn’t know what to do with all the apples. We might need to go back because this is the perfect recipe to use up lots of apples!
Yummy! I can imagine the delicious smell of the house and such a perfect fall smell. I can’t wait to try this recipe and it would be great for Thanksgiving too!
Oh my goodness! This looks so delicious and I can smell it from here! I’m definitely partial to apples versus pumpkins in the fall season. Can’t wait to try this out!
I hope I can go apple picking this season. Ihave never made apple butter and this looks incredible.
This looks just amazing! I have never had apple butter but I am sure it would be delicious on toast.
I had been waiting for apples and the tree next door didn’t get any so I am going to have to buy some on the weekend.

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I love apple butter so I’m going to have to make this for my family.
My DIL and my baby grand love apple butter. I’m thinking it’s a good one to have for breakfast too!
Fall is here and I love the recipes that come with it. I be the house smells amazing while this is cooking. Can’t wait to make it.
Yummy! Apple butter sounds delicious. Sometimes it’s fun to cook something apple-y just so you can smell the amazing apple sweetness throughout the day.
