Crock-pot Apple Butter

Happy 1st official week of Fall!  This past week we made apple butter, apple jelly, and marshmallow fluff to prepare for the upcoming holiday seasons.  Today's recipe is super simple and one of my favorites.  Do you have any favorite fall recipes?  If so, please share!

{ Crock-pot Apple Butter }


3 lb apples- I used Honey Crisp, but original recipe calls for Granny Smith
4 cups sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg


Peel, core, and chop apples until equals 3 lbs weighed.  Place in crock-pot.  Should fit in a 6 qt. or larger crockpot.  Add sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir until mixed through.  Cook on high for 3 hours.  Reduce crockpot to low heat and cook an additional 6-7 hours.  Make sure you stir throughout the day or you may burn it.  About 10 minutes before butter is done, wash your jars in hot, soapy water.  When done rinsing put directly into a heated 300* oven to get nice and hot for about 10 minutes.  Boil your lids (must be new, cannot be used or may not seal properly).  Remove hot jars from oven, put hot butter in hot jars, put lids and rings on, and screw tight.  Then flip for 1 minute and then flip upright and wait for the ping. 

Cover with a towel over night and  make sure you let sit for 24 hrs.  Yum!
