Slow Cooker Apple Butter is a fall favorite of mine but this was actually my first time making it! I was so surprised how simple it really was to make homemade apple butter, the crock pot ended up doing all of the work for me! It’s my new favorite addition to morning toast!

I would love to try making this with a bit of pumpkin in it next time, I think that would be such an amazing spin! (Updated: Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter Recipe)

I first had apple butter in Pennsylvania when I was little and fell in love! It was just so delicious! Similar to applesauce but even smoother and better to use as a spread instead of just a snack.  Last summer I managed to find some pear butter at the Jam Pot, a local monastery that makes jam too and that was incredible too! I actually might have enjoyed it even more than apple butter! The Jam Pot is my favorite place to get jam, they always have such fun varieties like the Rosehip Jam, Dandelion Jelly, and Rosé Jelly.  One time, I got a banana muffin that was bigger than my head there! I ended up having that for breakfast for four days after I went!
