Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Place apples in a slow cooker. Cook on High, stirring occasionally, until apples are softened and broken down, about 3 hours. Add blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves; stir to combine. Lower temperature to Low. Simmer until apple butter is thickened, stirring often, 8 hours.
  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack apple butter into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.
  3. Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

It's a good recipe. The only problem I had was when I put the apples in the slow cooker like the recipe asked for. The apples weren't breaking down. I put the sugar in with the apples. Then the ...

I really enjoyed this. So easy to make and really tasty. I think next time I'll cut down on the allspice and clove a little bit, just to suit my tastes. But this one's definitely a keeper.

This is a great recipe! It took longer than 11 hr. and 15 min. in my slow cooker to cook it down thick enough. I also processed it in half pint jars and gave it out to family and friends who h...
