Description

Starting with homemade or store bought applesauce and turning it into apple butter is a snap!

Ingredients

  • 4 quarts Applesauce
  • 1 cup Turbinado Sugar (sugar In The Raw)
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Allspice
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Preparation

1. Place applesauce in crockpot (6-quart size). Add both sugars and spices. Stir in vanilla.

2. Turn crockpot on high for 1 hour. After 1 hour, turn the heat down to low and leave the lid slightly ajar, letting the moisture escape as the applesauce cooks.

3. Stirring occasionally, continue to cook on low for an additional 7 to 8 hours. The applesauce will change color as it turns into apple butter.

4. When apple butter is nicely browned and thick, place in jars or plastic containers. Can be used immediately.

Notes:
The amount of sugar needed depends on the sweetness of the applesauce. Adjust sugar according to your personal taste.
The apple butter can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 months and in the freezer up to one year. It will last longer if it is canned using the water bath method. Use standard canning methods.
If your crockpot is smaller than 6 quarts, adjust ingredients according to the size of your cooker.
