CROCKPOT APPLE BUTTER!

   This recipe comes from www.changingmydestiny.wordpress.com .  I know many of you have asked me for an apple butter recipe, and here is a truely, tastey one.  Good luck and don't go overboard on the butta!




CrockPot Apple Butter



I used this easy recipe from Cake Student because I had everything on hand and it worked out beautifully. I used a little more water than the recipe called for, and I did add slightly more brown sugar and spices. By slightly more, I mean rounded teaspoons instead of being specific with my measurements. I mean can a few extra pinches of brown sugar really hurt?


Crock Pot Apple Butter

(Makes a little more than 1 pint)

1 dozen apples, peeled, cored, cubed
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon All Spice

Step 1:
Peel, Core, and Chop a dozen apples. I used apples from our trip to the Apple Orchard. I’m no apple expert, but these apples were more dense than the apples I typically buy in the grocery store. The flavor was great, but it took longer to break down in the Crockpot.

Step 2:
Toss the apples in the sugar and spices.

Step 3:
Put everything in the Crockpot, then [say it with me] Set It, and Forget It!
anyone else remember that infomercial?
I cooked it on Low overnight and woke up to this…

After a few more hours on low, I bumped it to high and propped the lid.

it cooked down and thickened quite a bit.

Step 4:
I suppose it’s optional, but I decided to blend the butter down smooth. You can eat it right out of the Crockpot, I did. I just took a spoon to the Crockpot and dove in, it was divine. However, for the finished product I wanted it smoother and pulled out my Magic Bullet since I don’t own an immersion blender. Then poured it into clean canning jars.

So after 15 hours and a dozen apples picked right from the tree, I had 1 pint of delicious apple butter. I froze half the batch and have the other half in the fridge just waiting to be eaten…maybe straight from the jar.
