  • For 3- or 4-quart slowcooker:
  • 7 large apples
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
Servings: 48

  1. Peel and quarter the apples. Place in slowcooker with the vanilla extract. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or so.
  2. Mash apples with fork. Add the rest of the ingredients, cook an additional 3-5 hours, still on low.
  3. Puree in blender to desired smoothness (you can skip this step if you prefer a chunkier apple butter; it only takes a few seconds to get a nice, smooth apple butter in the blender).
  4. NOTE: I like to buy bruised and over-ripe apples off the distressed cart at my grocery store, which is a great way to make cheap apple butter. Your apples don't have to be pretty or particularly fresh.
  5. The timing is up to you. I started my apples around 7pm, went to sleep, smashed them and added the other ingredients around 6:00 the next morning, then blended and jarred it a couple of hours later. As long as you don't let your apples burn, this recipe is impossible to screw up.
  6. Serving Size:Makes about 3 cups, or 48 1-tbsp servings.
