Expert Tips

  • For a more basic version of slow-cooker apple butter, just remove the gingers and add one cinnamon stick to the apple mixture at the beginning of the cooking process. Remove the stick before pureeing.
  • Be sure to let the apple butter cool at least 15 minutes before blending. Do not fill blender more than halfway (work in batches). Remove cap from hole in blender lid, and to avoid splattering, cover it with dish towel while blending.
