Apple Butter

Recipe - Apple Butter - A Seasonal Favorite

From  Weston Kitchen

7+ hours
Cook Time


  • 10 lbs of apples, cored and sliced ( you can mix and match a variety of apples, depending on the flavor profile you prefer  NOTE: softer apples cook down faster)
  • 2 c brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 T ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t ground cloves


A century ago, there were thousands of unique varieties of apples in the United States, but with the industrialization of our agriculture we have decided to only focus on a few varieties of apples. With the loss of biodiversity we have lost a lot of flavors, at least at the supermarket. The apple industry settled on a handful of varieties to promote and market. They became commercially extinct—but not quite biologically extinct. You can still find a good variety at the farmer's markets and your local orchards.



How To

  1. Core and slice apples
  2. Toss with sugar and spices
  3.  Cook on low for ~12 hours in the slow cooker
  4.  Once the apples are soft, puree in batches in blender until smooth
  5.  Place back in slow cooker for a few more hours to let flavors caramelize
  6.  Apple butter will keep in the refrigerator for a month, and you can also can or freeze some to enjoy throughout the year.

Makes 6 -8 pint jars
