Simple Crock Pot Apple Butter Recipe

Crock Pot Apple Butter Recipe

Here is a very simple recipe to make old fashioned Apple Butter.

Cook 5 lbs of apples quartered and peeled in water until they can be mashed into a pulp

Add 1-1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar, then if needed add water until you achieve 7 cups of pulp. 

Add 3 cups of sugar, 1-1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon of Allspice, and 1 teaspoon of Cloves.

Pour into a Crock Pot and cook over night. Place a large pizza pan under the Crock Pot to catch any overflow while cooking.

Pour into jelly jars while it is still hot and seal per recommended safe canning procedures.


As cooler fall air begins to stir, the processing and taste of fresh apples begin to enrich our thoughts of the upcoming fall season.  Baked apples, apple pie, apple butter, and fresh apple cider are just a few of our favorites.  Cottage Craft Works offers The Complete Apple Cider Press.  The unit has an attached apple grinder and Heavy duty 1" diam. pressing screw with Acme thread to exert a powerhouse of pressure with a minimum effort.

The apple grinder features a hardwood drum studded with eight rows of stainless steel teeth mounted on a steel crankshaft inside the hopper.(Grinder can be easily removed from press and mounted on a sawhorse or other support, allowing one person to grind fruit, another to press juices.)
Heavy cast-iron flywheel with hardwood handle rotates drum mounted on steel shaft -- all perfectly balanced for smooth, easy grinding.

Large steel-banded pressing tub will hold up to one bushel of pulp inside the fitted, fine-mesh pressing bag. It will keep the skins, stems and pulp inside the bag letting only the juice flow through.   The entire press frame and tub are made from SOLID MAPLE for super strength.  The uprights are also made of sturdy maple and the extra wide-stance legs provide total stability under grinding and pressing action.

The optional Wooden Hopper holds 35 pounds of apples and makes grinding easier and faster.

The press parts can also be ordered in a kit form, without the wood to build your own press.

Cottage Craft Works also has The Complete Apple Cider how to book.  Cottage Craft Works is a unique online general store featuring old time products from the cottage based USA small business craftsmen and manufactures.  See all of our products at
