Sugar Free Apple Butter in a Crock Pot


Crock Pot Apple ButterIt’s apples apples apples this time of year!

We pressure canned a whole bunch this weekend, and STILL had some left over.

So this year I decided to try making apple butter in a crock pot.

We use apple butter quite a bit around here.  Mostly because it’s hands down the best way to get my kids to take Fermented Cod Liver Oil.  Adding a bit of apple butter on the spoon makes the sting of the oil simply disappear.  Fermented Cod Liver Oil is a fantastic immuno supportive supplement due to its highly available vitamins A and D and essential fatty acids.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to make apple butter in a crock pot!  You simply fill your crock pot with sliced and peeled apples and cook it overnight.  In the morning take the lid off and continue cooking until desired consistency is achieved.  You can add some coconut sugar, cinnamon, and cloves if you’d like to.  Or not.

Store it in the fridge.

Simple Sugar Free Apple Butter


  • Apples - enough to fill your crock pot
  • Water - just enough to coat the bottom of the crock pot
  • Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg to taste (all optional)
  • Coconut Sugar to taste (optional)


  1. Peel, core and chop your apples (I used an apple peeler for this)
  2. Put enough water in the bottom of the crock pot just to coat it so the apples don't burn
  3. Fill your crock pot with the apples
  4. Cover and cook on low for about 9 hours (I did this overnight)
  5. Take off the cover and continue cooking until butter thickens to desired consistency
  6. Fill clean jars and store in the fridge (or freeze for later)
