I found the perfect way to use up all the remaining apples from our apple picking trip, apple butter! This was my first time making it, and it couldn’t have been easier. My slow cooker did all the work while we slept, and we woke up to a wonderful smell in the kitchen and delicious spread for our toast.
I only filled half the crock pot (about 10 apples), and it made 1 jar full. We have used it in oatmeal, on top of vanilla ice cream, on tree bread, on french toast, and on crackers. Whats that? Ohhh, you haven’t heard about tree bread?! Well, I guess you’d better check back in a few days to learn how to make it!

- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp All Spice
- Throw everything into your slow cooker.
- Cook 10-12 hours on Low (over night).
