Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Fall is my favorite season.  I love the cooler weather, wearing sweaters, and leaves falling.  I also love all the cozy Autumn flavors, including apple butter!  Apple butter is a great Fall flavor and can be added to so many more dishes than just toast.

How to Make the Best Slow Cooker Apple Butter

While the full recipe details are below, here are some tips to make the best apple butter.

  • Apples: it is best to use an apple with flavor, but that is not too sweet.  I also do not recommend Granny Smith apples, as they are too tart for this recipe.  The best apples to use for this include red delicious and gala.  Make sure to peel the apples before adding them to the slow cooker.  This is important because the skin will get tough in the cooking process and will prevent the butter from getting smooth.
  • Spices: I added ground cinnamon to this.  As an alternative to ground cinnamon, you can add cinnamon sticks to the slow cooker.  You can also add nutmeg or cardamom.

How to Serve Apple Butter

Here are some ways that you can serve apple butter:

  • On warm buttered toast.
  • As a sauce on pork chops.
  • Flavoring in an apple oat milk latte.
  • Adding to baking, such as scones and cakes.
