  • 6 lbs apples (approximately; see *; peeled, cored and cut into small ½ inch pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger


  • Place peeled and chopped apples in the base of a 6 quart slow cooker. Stir in the spices.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8-10 hours. You may want to stir it partway through (only once).
  • After cooking through, blend it until smooth using an immersion blender. Alternatively you can work in batches and carefully puree the apple butter in a stand blender.
  • Cool and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You may freeze for up to 6 months; make sure to leave lids ajar and to leave space for expansion if you are freezing right in the jars.


*I honestly did not measure, but filled the slow cooker all the way to the top with peeled & chopped apples. They will reduce in size substantially during the cook time so make sure to fill it right to the top!
