Apple Butter with Maple Syrup

Apple Butter is a concentrated version of applesauce. This is done by slow-cooking the apples so that the sugar in the apples is caramelized. Yum!


  • 4 pounds of organic sweet apples such as Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Ambrosia, cored and diced

  • 2 cups apple cider

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 1/8 ground cloves

  • 1 pinch salt

  • Optional: 1 vanilla bean; sliced and seeds scraped out


  • In your slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours, stirring halfway through cooking.

  • Remove the cinnamon stick and transfer the apples to a blender, or use an immersion stick, and puree until smooth.

  • Cook, uncovered, on high for 1-2 hours or until slightly thickened. Taste and adjust sweetness, if necessary.

  • Cool and store in glass jars in the fridge for up to 1 month or can them for a longer shelf-life.

Apple Butter is great mixed into your oatmeal, or spread on top of toast or a piece of plain cake.
