Crockpot Spiced Apple Butter



Hey Loves! I made this delicious Spiced Apple Butter in the Crockpot after a trip to the store found us coming home with an amazing assortment of locally picked apples and thought I'd share this really easy recipe. It's the perfect time of year to make this because the apples are in the swing of being harvested here in the Midwest just as the leaves are all of the colors fall. Nothing says Autumn quite like some Spiced Apple Butter. I promise you, your house is going to smell amazing. So let's get started..

Ingredient List:
Apples - 5-6 medium sized apples
Ground Cinnamon - 1 Tablespoon
Orange - Zest of the entire orange
Pumpkin Spice - 1 Teaspoon
Cinnamon Stick - 3 Sticks
Raw Sugar - 1 Cup
Vanilla - 1/2 teaspoon
Lemon Juice - 1 Tablespoon
Apple Cider - 1 cup (I used Tuttle Orchards, some of the best Central Indiana cider!)

First, I peeled and cored the apples and then sliced them into cubes. I do this because it will make it easier for the apples to break down while they cook. Next, I dumped all the ingredients into the slow cooker and set it on low heat for 8 - 10 hours. Stir the pot of goodness occasionally throughout the cooking process so that all of the spices and such can marry. I picked out the cinnamon sticks at around the 9 hour mark and used an immersion blender so we get that buttery smooth texture. If you don't have an immersion blender then you can dump the apple butter into a regular standing blender and it will do the job just as well if not better.

And that's it! This recipe will yield enough to fill a 12-16 oz. mason jar, plenty to satisfy your apple butter addiction for a few weeks at least. This is also very delicious folded into your morning oatmeal, spread on a couple slices of toast and even as a sauce to accompany some delicious pork chops.

Our apartment STILL smells amazing a couple days after I made it!

I hope y'all enjoyed this easy, delicious recipe. Please, comment and share my loves!
