Apple Butter {crockpot!}

apple butter

This months Cooking with Ms. Kat is an APPLE theme! It goes along great with last weeks fieldtrip to Apple Hill Orchard. And I thought it would be something fun! I tinkered with this recipe for several days and after several batches I found what I think is YUMMY!


Ms. Kat’s Crockpot Apple Butter:

this easily doubles, triples, etc….

1 dozen apples*

3/4 cup brown sugar

4 cloves

1 t cinnamon

1 lemon zest and juice

1/4 to 1/2 cup orange juice

apple chunks

Peel. Core. Blitz Apples in food processor. Put in crockpot. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, juices and zest. Stir well. Set crockpot on low for 10 hrs. Next, prop open lid to crock and set on low for additional 4 to 8 hrs depending on texture and type of apples.


*I used a mix of apples. I used Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, play around and find what you like best!
