  • Cook on High for 4 hours; stir. Remove cover and continue cooking until the apples are very tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

  • Scrape apple butter into a bowl; refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

  • Blend apple butter with an immersion blender until smooth. Alternately, you can run the butter through a food mill or blend in a blender.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I used Splenda Brown Sugar in place of the white sugar. I was so happy with this recipe. I am not a lover of Apple Butter but was making it for someone else. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. I loved it! Read More

Way way way TOO SWEET! Unless you are using all Granny Smith apples this tasted like sugar--with a bit of apple flavoring. Scale back the sugar to 1/2 cup or even less. I used a mixture of pink lady and granny smith apples and I'm glad I waited to to add sugar until nearly the end...otherwise I would have had to toss the entire pot away. Read More

I combined the advice in the reviews with the original recipe and it came out pretty good. I used both white sugar and Splenda brown sugar with Granny Smith apples. Read More
