This Apple Butter makes the house smell like a fall haven! I used my VitaClay to make this apple butter, but you can also use a standard slow cooker. The VitaClay is a clay pot that cooks food much faster than a slow cooker, and the clay is completely non toxic! I use it in many recipes for stew and soup as well. The apple butter is so delicious on our Turmeric Bread, and welcomes the fall like no other!

Apple Butter on Turmeric Bread

Yield: 6 oz.


4 lbs apples

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 tablespoon lemon

1/2 cup water




Place water in the base of a slow cooker. Chop apples into slices and place in the slow cooker as well. Stir in lemon juice and spices. Cook on high for about 6 hours in slow cooker, or 2 hours in a VitaClay (my favorite purchase of all time! See head note).

When complete, allow to cool and blend in a high speed blender. Return back to pot and allow to cook longer into a thick compote. In a standard slow cooker, this will take about 6 hours. In a Vita Clay, an additional 45 minutes.

When your apple butter is nice and thick, allow it to cool, then store in a jar in your fridge for up to a week and a half.
