Pin Recipe Print Recipe


  • 5 1/2 pounds of apples ½ peck, washed, peeled, and chopped
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon Ground
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated Nutmeg
  • pinch of ground Cloves
  • 5 tablespoons Coconut Sugar optional


  • Add all of your ingredients to your slow cooker and mix well.
  • Put the lid on and cook on low overnight - 9 to 12 hours.
  • When you wake up, give the apples a good stir. Puree them with an immersion blender or put everything into a blender and then put the puree back into the crock pot.
  • Taste and adjust the spices/sugar.
  • Cook on low with the lid slightly ajar for a few more hours or until the apple butter is as thick as you’d like it to be (I did another 5-6 hours). Stir frequently.
  • Store in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator.


For a sugar-free apple butter, omit coconut sugar and choose sweet apples.
