D.I.Y. : Crockpot Apple Butter

After baking two more loaves of our Apple Cinnamon Bread bread yesterday, I STILL had more apples from our orchard trip. So...back to the pinterest board where I found this recipe for Crockpot Apple Butter. I did modify it some for the amount of apples that we had left and for the spices that we had on hand.

I used:

6 Apples: Peeled, Cored, and Chopped
1/4 Cup Water
1/8 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg

Directions:

I peeled, cored, and chopped all six apples.

I then combined the dry ingredients in a bowl and then tossed the apples in the sugar mix.

I poured all of it into our Crockpot and turned it on low.

Start Time: 7:45 am

At 6:00 pm I took everything out and blended it on the "baby food" setting. I poured it into a mason jar and let cool for two hours before placing in the fridge. My official taste tester Mark approved!

*I did not have any small mason jars but I think the six apples made enough to fill one of those. It ended up being about half of a big mason jar*


Do you make your own apple butter? How do you use up apples?

Happy Fall!

It was SO incredibly easy! And SO much cheaper than buying it at the orchard. I love anything that can get thrown in a crockpot and left all day - my dream meals! :)
