Crock Pot Apple Butter Recipe

Several of you asked for my apple butter recipe that I make in the crock pot.   It is simple and it is delicious.

Approximately 3 lbs apples
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
Dash of salt
3/4 cup water

Fill crock pot 3/4 full of peeled, cored, sliced apples.  Add remaining ingredients and stir until evenly mixed.  Cover and cook on low overnight.  If butter has too much liquid, remove lid and cook on high until desired consistency.

If you make your own, I would love to know what you think about it.

Update on my mama…Honestly, this is not a great time.  She is feeling really bad.  She has very little strength, can’t eat, and just feels lousy.  Boy, this is a tough one, my friends.  It’s tough to see your mom, who has always been so strong, now feeling so sick.  I ask you to please continue to pray.  Thank you.

Also…I am busily preparing for our guests who are coming in from Louisiana this week.  Mr. and Mrs. Buckets of Burlap and their beautiful family will be here soon.  We cannot wait for their arrival.  Boy, do we have some fun things planned.   I will be taking them to the Nashville Flea Market while they are in town, so if you are going to be there, let me know and maybe we can have a blogger hook up sometime that day.  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Hope you are all doing great and pray that you all have blessed Sunday.

Amy, Your crock pot apple butter sounds delicious and I'm going to have to try to make this. I haven't ever made apple butter but sure do like it.

What type of apple do you use?

I am so sorry about your mom being ill. Will pray in Jesus name.
God bless,

Amy- What a great way to make Apple Butter in the crockpot! I will try this- MyHero LOVES apple butter!

I am sorry to hear that your Mom is feeling so ill. It is a rough journey she is on...and probably the worst part for her is to know that she can't be the "strong" one in the family right now. God bless her AND you as you deal with this. xo Diana

Thank you for the recipe friend! I have several bags of apples from our trees in our basement right now. I'm definitely going to try this recipe this coming week.

I will be praying for your mom. It must be so hard to watch her struggle. I will pray for you too as you go through this trial with her. {{{hugs}}}

Amy -

I will continue to pray for your mom that she gets through this difficult time. She is fortunate to have you to lean on and be strong for her. Keep the faith.

I hope all of the nesting you are doing will help bring you some comfort during your mom's illness. Aren't these just the times when being at home and doing homey things is just what we need to help us feel safe and hopeful.

I loved the jelly cupboard, and this recipe looks delicious. Even more, it looks like it would make the whole house smell wonderful.

For some reason, I thought the Burlaps were already there. I hope you have a wonderful time.

And I am not forsaking your mom!!
