  • 3 pounds apples (such as Gala, Fuji or Golden Delicious) cored and roughy chopped
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • pinch salt


  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and mix well. Cook on Low for 8 Hours.
  • Transfer cooked apples to a food processor and puree until smooth. If you prefer a thicker consistency, return to the slow cooker and cook for an additional 3 hours on low with the lid off. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.


Leave the skin on for maximum nutrition benefits.
If you prefer sweeter apple butter, add 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar.
Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
