Slow Cooker Apple Butter
Fall marks the beginning of slow cooker season. Did you know that in addition to soup, chili, and stew, your slow cooker can also be used to make delicious preserves, like this apple butter?
For this recipe I used a mix of Gala and Granny Smith apples, and flavored the butter with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Feel free to use your favorite cooking apples and spices. You can process the apple butter in a hot water bath and store it on the shelf for up to six months, or just store it in the fridge for up to two months.
