  • 4 half pint jars/32 servings | Serving size: 2 tablespoons |

Ingredients :

  • 12 medium apples (4 each of Granny Smith, Gala, Honeycrisp) peeled, cored, cut into 1″ cubes
  • Note: We like to mix the apples with tart Granny Smith & sweet apples like Gala & Honeycrisp. Other sweet
  • apples Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, Red Delicious, Fuji, Ambrosia, and Spartan.
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • Pinch kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sweetener, more or less to taste (recommended: sucanat or coconut palm sugar or honey

Preparation :

  • Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add apples to the slow-cooker, pour dry ingredients over and toss to coat. If using, pour in honey and stir.
  • Cover, cook on low 8-10 hours until tender and brown. If you prefer chunky apple butter, leave as is. For a creamier, less chunky butter, whisk until smooth.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature, add to 1/2 pint or pint jelly jars, leave about 1″ head space at the top to allow for expanding. Cover with lid and freeze or refrigerate.
