Slowcooker Apple Butter (Slow Cooker, Crock Pot, Crockpot)

Submitted by: HEALTHEKATE

Introduction

This is so easy, and the result is a wonderfully sweet, smooth apple spread that's low in calories and basically fat free. You can bake or cook with apple butter, top your favorite frozen dessert with it, add it to yogurt...the sky is the limit! :)

This recipe calls for considerably less sugar than most, but believe me: it's plenty sweet, especially if you're using a sweet apple variety. (You might increase the sugar if using tart apples depending on your preference.)

Ingredients

    For 3- or 4-quart slowcooker:

    7 large apples

    2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp allspice
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/4 cup brown sugar

Directions

Peel and quarter the apples. Place in slowcooker with the vanilla extract. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or so.

Mash apples with fork. Add the rest of the ingredients, cook an additional 3-5 hours, still on low.

Puree in blender to desired smoothness (you can skip this step if you prefer a chunkier apple butter; it only takes a few seconds to get a nice, smooth apple butter in the blender).

NOTE: I like to buy bruised and over-ripe apples off the distressed cart at my grocery store, which is a great way to make cheap apple butter. Your apples don't have to be pretty or particularly fresh.

The timing is up to you. I started my apples around 7pm, went to sleep, smashed them and added the other ingredients around 6:00 the next morning, then blended and jarred it a couple of hours later. As long as you don't let your apples burn, this recipe is impossible to screw up.

Serving Size: Makes about 3 cups, or 48 1-tbsp servings.
