Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Slow Cooker Apple Butter.  I had about 8 apples to use up in the fridge, so I decided to attempt some slow cooker apple butter. I was so glad I did.  Not only was it super easy to make, but it let me use up all those bruised apples!

I added a little bit of sweetener to my apples because I wanted to make sure this was very different than my slow cooker applesauce.

I thought the small amount of sugar would help give it a thicker texture once cooked down.  I really do think it helped, but next time I am going to try it with no sugar at all and see how it turns out.

  1. I'm wondering if this would freeze or if you could possibly can it? This would be great for Christmas baskets! Love your recipes, they're pure ingredients and very simple :)
    1. You can definitely freeze it. I am not sure if any changes need to be made to can it. Maybe you can google to find out if you need to tweak the recipe for canning?
  2. Making this now and can't wait to try it! Thanks for another great recipe? Hoping my toddler likes it in his school lunch. Any ideas other than on bread? I know you have a recipe coming too :)
  3. This looks amazing!! Thank you for sharing, I will be making a batch of this the coming week. are the end results different when you use maple syrup vs coconut sugar?
