Since this takes so long, I found it convenient to let it cook overnight on a weekend and finish it up in the morning.

Slow Cooker Apple Butter

12 medium Granny Smith or other cooking apples, peeled and cut into fourths
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1. Mix all ingredients in 5- to 6-quart slow cooker.

2. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8-10 hours or until apples are very tender.

3. Mash apples with potato masher or large fork.

4. Cook uncovered on low heat setting 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, until mixture is very thick. Cool about 2 hours.

5. Spoon apple butter into container. Cover and store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

Trish,
I've never seen Apple Butter in the supermarkets here but the recipe Mags posted looks good. I might try it.

How do we use apple butter? As a spread? Can it be used as a baking substitute?

Hi - Use as a spread or as a replacement for butter in recipes. This works particularly well in non-cookie baking (cakes, brownies, sweet quick breads, etc.)

What is a good sub for cookie baking? I tried reducing the margarine in one recipe and it just didn't work.

Thanks Mags,
I will be on my way to the grocery shortly and now I can add a large bag of apples to my list.

Does anyone happen to have a recipe that would be safe to put in a jar for a gift to ship to family out of town for Christmas? In other words....that does not have to be refrigerated after it is made.

Hey shell, what if you put it in jars (mason/sealing jars) before it cooled and then allow it to cool, sealing it from the air, do you think this would preserve it for longer? I would love to make this for gifts as well, I love apple butter! I had some at a friends wedding a while ago, she had samples on the tables for everyone, and I took some home, so I assume it would last out of the cool for a little while....

actually this one would be safe if canned properly- but proper canning to make things truly sterile isn't an easy process... I was thinking about making it and using DH's canning equipment to can it once completed. On the other hand... it would be as is out for a few hours to be delivered...
