Crock Pot Apple Butter

My husband is a huge fan of apple butter, so of course I had to try a homemade version of it. 

Crock Pot Apple Butter: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

There are a few things that I love about this recipe. I love that you can use any type of apple. I love how easy it is to get ready. I love how I do not have to peel the apples. But most importantly I love how much my husband loved this apple butter!

Crock Pot Apple Butter
Ingredients:
6 apples, any type
1 tablespoon cinnamon
little squeeze of lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Directions:
Remove the core from the apples and roughly chop them. You do not need to peel the apples.

In a crock pot place the apples, cinnamon, water, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Stir, place the lid on crock pot and cook on low for 4 1/2 hours. Check occasionally to make sure there is still moisture in the crock pot and apples have not dried out. If needed add more water to keep the apples from drying out.

Place the apple butter into a blender or food processor and add a little squeeze of lemon. Puree until smooth.

Enjoy!!!

Notes:
After 4 1/2 hours if the apple butter does not have a nice brown color and looks more like applesauce, not apple butter, just turn the crock pot up to high and cook for another hour or so with the lid off checking often.
