Description

This Apple Butter is scented with warm spices and sweet vanilla bean. Cooking it in the slow cooker is easy and time-saving.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 5 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into small slices
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 vanilla bean

Instructions

  1. Peel, core, and chop the apples into thin, small slices. In a bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and salt. Combine all of the ingredients with the apples in the slow cooker and stir well. Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise, scrape out the seeds, and add the seeds along with the whole vanilla pod.
  2. Cook on high for 5 hours, stirring every hour or so.
  3. Take out the whole vanilla pod and puree the apples with an immersion blender until completely smooth. Cook another 2 hours, or until thickened to your liking.
  4. Pour the apple butter into mason jars and let cool before refrigerating. Enjoy!
