Crock Pot Apple Butter

  • 3 quarts (12 cups) apples, peeled and sliced
  • 3 cups sugar
  • Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice to taste
  • Canning jars, washed and sterilized
  • Canning lids and rings, washed and sterilized
  1. Place peeled and sliced apples in crock pot and cook 8 hours on high. Do not remove lid or stir until 8 hours is up.
  2. Remove lid and stir apples, removing any apples from the sides of crock pot that may have gotten too dark.
  3. Stir in sugar and spices to taste.
  4. Cover and reduce crock pot to low. Cook for 6 hours or until desired consistency, stirring occasionally.
  5. Place in canning jars while still hot. Place lid and ring and set on flat surface covered in a dish towel until they seal. Another option would be placing the filled jars (with lids and rings on) in a hot water bath for ten minutes.


  1. Sounds yummy! how much of each spice did you use?
