This slow cooker apple butter recipe is what will get you up in the morning during these cold and dark winter mornings. I’m telling you. Put this apple butter on top of your morning porridge, yoghurt or toasted bread and you’ll forget all about problems at work, with your partner, kids whatever. It’s literally that good.
First time making a slow cooker apple butter recipe but not last!
Definitely not the last time. I’m going to make this so many times forward. It’s perfectly sweet and sour at the same time. And the added cinnamon just makes it even more delicious and very Christmassy like, which we like these days, don’t we?
Personally, I’m that big a fan of the holiday that I just want everything to taste a bit like Christmas. So I find myself putting cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom etc. in almost anything at the moment. A bit crazy I know, but I can’t help it.

After 10 hours. Pour the boiled apples into a food processor and blend until a puree.
Pour the apple sauce back and set the slow cooker on 2 (high).
Cook without lid for 2 hours while stirring occasionally, so the apple sauce can thicken into a delicious apple butter.
