Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the taste of Apple Butter, so when I found a recipe for Apple Butter a couple of years ago I was totally ecstatic. Since then I have modified the recipe a couple of times, each time making a delicious Apple Butter even more tasty, and by using the Crock-Pot it makes the work less tedious. So of course I preferred using the slow cooker for this sweet and decadent recipe! So today I am sharing with you my favorite Slow Cooker Apple Butter Recipe!
5 lbs Cortland Apples peeled and chopped
1 Cup of sugar
½ Cup of Brown Sugar
3 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon all spice
A dash of salt
I like to use a crock-pot liner for recipes like this (definitely helps with cleanup). You can find them at most grocery and department stores, or you can order some on amazon here: slow cooker liners.
Spray the liner lightly with a cooking spray
Combine all of the above ingredients and stir up in the slow cooker. Doesn’t have to be mixed perfectly.
Set slow cooker on high for 1 hour
Then, decrease to low after the first hour–continuing to stew for 10 hours on low. Stirring once every couple of hours.
Crush the apples to a smooth consistency (a potato masher works well).
Fill your jars and enjoy or share with your family and friends (makes a great gift)!
I hope you will post pictures of your results in the comments section. Please share the recipe with a friend or follow me on Pinterest! And, check out my other apple recipe here: for Dutch Apple Cheesecake Pie.

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
