Crock Pot Homemade Apple Butter
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

Makes 4 cups - each serving 1 TBSP

Apple butter is a highly concentrated form of apple sauce, produced by long, slow cooking of apples with cider or water to a point where the sugar in the apples caramelizes, turning the apple butter a deep brown. The concentration of sugar gives apple butter a much longer shelf life as a preserve than applesauce. Apple butter was a popular way of using apples in colonial America, and well into the 19th century. The term “butter” refers to the thick, soft consistency, and apple butter’s use as a spread for breads. Typically seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, lemon juice and other spices, apple butter may be spread on buttered toast, used as a side dish, an ingredient in baked goods, or as a condiment.

I made a pretty good Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake last year and decided to expand upon it with a brownie crust. What a yummy combination!
