Mmm... Apple Butter!

  • Recipes
  • Healthy Eating

Apple butter is one of my all time favorite snacks. And the best part about it (in my mind, anyway) is that it's so easy to make! I want to show you, step by step, how to make this delicious snack.

Apple Butter

Here's what you will need:

  • 12 apples
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 3 Tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup raw honey

Here's what to do:

Start by peeling, coring and dicing the apples. Toss the apple pieces into a crockpot. Sprinkle the spices on the apples, and drizzle honey on top.

Apple Pieces in the Crockpot

Cook on low for 6 hours. Then, mash the apples with a potato masher or a fork. Let cook for another 2 hours.

When the apple butter is finished in the slow cooker, move it to a blender or food processor and pulse until it has reached your desired consistency (you may need to do this in batches, depending on the size of your blender or food processor). Move the apple butter to an airtight container, and let cool completely before storing in the refrigerator.

Apple Butter

Maybe I was a little quick to tell you the "best part" of apple butter earlier. The BEST part is that there are so many ways to enjoy it!

  • Spread it on a pancake, waffle, or piece of SWG bread.
  • Add it to oatmeal.
  • Dip sweet potato fries in it.
  • Use it as a sauce or glaze on chicken or pork.
  • Stir it into plain Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.

And the list goes on!

Have you ever had apple butter? What's your favorite way to eat it?
