Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Homemade slow-cooker Apple Butter is a sweet seasonal tradition. Made from fresh apples that are slow cooked to perfection; this cinnamon sweet smelling spread on a warm English muffin is the best way to start your day. My kids love putting a spoonful in their hot oatmeal and enjoying it with a cold glass of milk.

Check out the video to see how simple this soft, smooth buttery spread is to create.

Serve on bread/toast, muffins, pancakes or biscuits .
