Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Put the apples with the skin on and honey into a slow cooker (I use this one). Cover with the lid and turn on high for 4-6 hours, but no longer than 8 hours.
  2. Reduce heat to low for 8-12 hours.
  3. Puree fruit using an immersion blender (I have this one), or in batches with a blender (I use this one). Be careful since the fruit will be very hot.
  4. With the pureed fruit in the crockpot, prop at least one side of the lid open with a knife or chopstick. This allows the water inside to evaporate, thickening the apple butter.
  5. Cook on low for 2-6 hours, until apple butter is desired thickness.
  6. Store fruit in glass jars in the freezer, refrigerator or can using these basic steps.
