Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Another great use for my slow cooker! This apple butter is easy to make;  put everything in the slow cooker and forget about it!  Well almost! But seriously, I can’t image making apple butter without a slow cooker.

Apple butter, despite the name, has no butter in it. In fact apple butter is really just an apple sauce that is cook down and reduced to a thick and creamy texture.

I have made this apple butter with the left over apples we got from Colin’s client (remember that I shared with you that every Fall , one of Colin’s client bring us a huge basket of freshly picked apple).

You can use your apple butter in recipes, or like me, in the morning on an English muffin, bagel or toast. I like to can my apple butter by simply sterilizing jars and processing them in a water bath for 15 minutes, that way I can keep it on the shelf for months to come to enjoy.
