Apple Butter

Mama Lupiac loves apple butter but only one specific brand…Bama.  We can’t find it down here anymore so I started making it for her homemade.

This is so easy and you can control the sugar and spices.

It’s much better than store bought. 🙂

1 bag of Apples.  Pealed, cored and roughly chopped.  Sorry.  I forgot to take a pic before pealing.

3/4 cup Brown Sugar.

1 can Apple Nectar.  Nectar.  Not Apple Juice.

Spices of choice.  Cinnamon. Cloves. Cardamom. Etc.  Or you can do it like me and just use Apple Pie Spice for all things cinnamon. 🙂

Throw it all in a Crockpot.  Give it a good stir to coat the apples and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours or until it cooks down like above pic.

I didn’t get a picture of the next step but once it cooks down…remove the lid and turn off the Crockpot.  Let the apples completely cool and then puree them in a blender or with a blending stick.

It might seem too thin at this point but it sets up once it’s refrigerated.

I got 2 of these 2 cup jars from one bag of apples.

Hope y’all had a nice weekend. 🙂
