Simple Crockpot Apple Butter with no added sugar

Simple Crockpot Apple Butter with no added sugar

Apple picking season is in full effect and though these apples came from my local Target, I still managed to create some yummy goodness in my underused crockpot.

I have fond memories of eating apple butter as a kid on toast and last season when I paid over $6 to get a jar that didn’t have any extra ingredients, I decided to figure out how to make it myself.

Ingredients

  • 10 apples
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 cloves
  • zest of 1/2 lime
  • juice of 1/2 lime

Directions

  1. Rinse apples and chop apples into chunks removing the core and seeds but not the skin.
  2. Place the chopped apples into the crockpot.
  3. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, and lime zest.
  4. Stir and turn crockpot to the low setting.
  5. In about 8 hours, the apples should have broken down and turned turn.
  6. At this time use a hand blender to break down and additional skins and cook on high for another hour.
  7. Finally, stir in the juice from the lime. Add more cinnamon if you’d like.

Stored in a jar more than likely eaten on toast!
