Apple Butter

We love apple butter, but so many of the ones from the store just add tons of sugar.  I was thrilled to find a simple recipe that I changed to match our tastes that would allow us to have a carb friendly version and so simple to make!

Apple Butter

  • Servings: make three 8 ounce jars
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds apples – I used Gala
  • 1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar blend
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Cut up the apples into small pieces – do not peel
  2. Place apples, splenda brown sugar blend, vinegar, and spices into a prepared crock pot. Stir until all apples look coated.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours – stirring a couple times
  4. Turn the crock pot to high and cook an additional 2 hours
  5. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth
  6. Cook uncovered for about 1 more hour on low – just enough to thicken
  7. I canned mine – prepare the jars during the final hour. Then seal with the water bath canning method.
