Homemade Apple Butter

Apple butter and I have been having  a love affair for quite some time. I love it with everything from toast and biscuits to smeared on pork chops. Ive been known to take a spoon and eat it straight from the jar. This is my first attempt at making it at home and it turned out wonderful. I made this from several recipes that I found online.


3 single serve applesauce cups- I used the no sugar added variety

5 macintosh apples- peeled,cored, and diced

1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cloves

pinch of allspice

pinch of nutmeg

1 tbsp vanilla extract


Put everything in crockpot and cook on low for about 7 hours. Stir and adjust seasonings to taste. Crank the crockpot up to high and cook for 4 hours with lid off so that the moisture can escape and the apple butter will become thick.

This made enough to fill 3 small jelly jars.
