  • 3 pounds of apples (I used a mixture of granny smith, macintosh & gala)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Wash, peel, core and chop apples.
  • Coat inside of slow cooker with butter and place apples inside.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt over apples. Gently stir to mix. Pour water over mixture.
  • Place lid on slow cooker, set to low for 8 hours.
  • After cooking time, remove lid and let cool for 30 minutes. Using an immersion blender (regular blender on pulse or potato masher will also work) blend apples until smooth.
  • With lid off of crock pot, continue to cook apple butter for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until thickened.
  • Let cool & store in airtight container in refrigerator.
