Slow Cooker Apple Butter with Honey

Recipe by  

"The honey and brown sugar really gives the apple butter a little more depth then others I have tried. If you like a smoother apple butter, blend the apples once they are soft with a electric mixer. I like to use more then 1 variety of apples like Granny Smith and then something a little softer like fuji."

Can't say I can judge apple weight worth a darn. Loaded the crock-pot to what I thought was full. Apparently I was not paying attention (it's an "old thing")and mixed measurements for white & brown sugar, got them reversed. The only other change was 1/2 tsp nutmeg. The result was absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to the next batch as soon as I can find time!

Perfect apple butter, and so easy! This was our first attempt at making apple butter and the results are fantastic. We sliced, peeled and cored the 5 1/2 lbs. of Golden Delicious apples (which completely filled my 6-quart crock pot)and then mixed the honey, sugars and spices exactly as listed in the recipe and put them on top. Cooked on high 1 hour as directed, then cooked on low for 10 hours. When it was done, I used a wire whisk for a couple of minutes to achieve a smooth consistency. It tastes amazing and was a hit with everyone in our family, adults and kids alike! Notes: We live at almost 6,000 ft. elevation, so it may take less time at lower elevations. Also, I took the lid off the crock pot as it cooled to prevent condensation from watering down the apple butter. We will definitely be making this again and again.

Just the recipe I was looking for!! Used three different type of apples but changed nothing else. I did puree it in a blender at the end of cooking to give it a smoother consistency. My husband is already asking when I am going to make it again!

This is THE BEST apple butter! The honey really makes it and I feel more nutritious than all sugar. Try it!

Wonderful! The honey isn't overpowering but adds a lovely note to the flavor. I used Fuji apples because they were the least expensive at Costco and raw organic wildflower honey. I also pureed them at the end instead of trying to mash them with a fork. Texture was perfect!

Awesome recipe! I had 6 gala apples that were on their last leg, so I looked for a recipe to use them up. Good choice! It never made it to apple butter. My husband and son spooned the warm chunky apple mixture right out of the crock pot and put it over vanilla ice cream. They raved about it and insisted I leave it exactly the way it was - no mashing. It was a little sweet, and the honey gave it a distinct honey taste. If you don't like the taste of honey, I would decrease or eliminate it. Great recipe. Will definitely use again.

I had 2 big grocery bag full of green, tart apples from my father-in-law's tree. Not having a food scale, I used 1 of the bags. After peeling and coring the apples, I put the apples in my Vitamix and did a course chop so the apples would fit in my 6 quart crock pot. I had about 2 inches left to spare in the pot. I used about 3 teaspoons of apple pie seasoning since it had cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Used the same amount of sugars and honey. My son and I could of eaten all of it before it was cooked. Followed the cooking instructions and let it cooked overnight. Boy, did the house smell wonderful! Used a stick blender to make it a smooth texture. I took the lid off after 10 hours and it thickened just a little bit. It was more like an applesauce consistency and is really sweet. May lessen the sugar next time. I ended up filling 11, 1/2 pint size jars. Plan to give them out as gifts. Thanks!
