Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Slow Cooker Apple Butter


Ingredients:
5 lbs. apples assorted varieties, cored and sliced
¼ cup water
2 cinnamon sticks optional
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
And many more.

Instructions:
  • Step one. Add your sliced apples (you can keep the peels on) to your slow cooker with 1/4 cup water. Turn the slow cooker on to high heat and cook for four hours. Alternatively, set it to low heat and let it cooker for a longer amount of time - about 6 to 8 hours. Stir the apples semi-frequently to prevent sticking to the bottom of the slow cooker - the water will help prevent sticking but you don’t want them to burn at all. The apples will get very tender.
  • After it, Turn off the heat and using a potato masher or wooden spoon, mash the apples into a thick, chunky applesauce. Let it cool slightly.
  • After it, Next, we’re going to blend the applesauce completely smooth so the apple butter will be super silky. If you have an immersion blender, that’s an easy way to blend it up. I used my Vitamix, and most blenders would do the job. If your blender is on the smaller side, it may require multiple batches. You can also use a food processor, though that will require a couple batches. Make sure to leave an air hole while blending to let the steam escape - your applesauce will still be very hot. I left the apple butter blending in my Vitamix on medium speed for about 1 minute - yours may take longer to get as smooth as you want.
