When harvest time rolls around, apples are everywhere—and we couldn’t be more excited. Whether you pick your apples on a fun family outing to the orchard or grab them fresh from the grocery store, there’s almost no end to the creative ways you can use them in the kitchen. This year, we’re devoting a few pounds of fruit to our favorite new fall treat: Slow-Cooker Double Ginger Apple Butter. With just five ingredients and a slow cooker preparation, it’s incredibly easy to make, and packed with warming, sweet flavor, thanks to both fresh and sweet, crystallized ginger. It’s a surprising, yet familiar, fall treat that’s perfect for gifting—or keeping all to yourself. Here’s how to make it!
What you’ll need:
1. Gather your ingredients
3. Cover; cook on High heat setting 3 hours.
4. Uncover; cook on High heat setting 1 to 2 hours longer, stirring occasionally, until mixture has thickened. Turn off heat; let cool 15 minutes.
5. In blender or food processor, puree mixture (in batches, if needed) until smooth.
