Organic Apple Butter

For at least twenty years I have though I didn’t like Apple Butter. The Apple Butter I had was syrupy sweet and packed with sugar. A friend recently told me about the delicious aroma of Apple Butter cooking in the slow cooker at her home and later about how they often enjoy an all natural version. I learned from her that you can make an all natural sugar free Apple Butter simply in the slow cooker so I decided to give it another try. I learned that I LOVE Apple Butter when it is prepared this way! With Brown Box #2 Apples on sale for just $3.79 for 5 lb. this month it is a perfect time to make sauce, dried cinnamon apple chips, canned or frozen apples for pie and cobbler and Apple Butter.

Apple Butter


  1. Peel and Chop Apples. All varieties work well, but some take longer to cook down. Add a pinch of salt, cinnamon and nutmeg if desired.
  2. Cook apples in a slow cooker on low for 12 hours stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning as needed.
  3. When the apples are cooked down and dark brown remove from heat. Blend until smooth in a blender or VitaMix.
  4. Put in a container or jar, cover and refrigerate.
  5. Enjoy!
