Overnight Crockpot Apple Butter
This recipe comes to Taste of Nova Scotia from Halifax photographer/food blogger Kelly Neil. She recommends apple butter dolloped on homemade granola, on pancakes or French toast, on ice cream, on cake, on toast or by itself with a spoon.
|1 cup||dark brown sugar|
|1||lemon (juice from half)|
|1.5 tsp||pumpkin pie spice|
|5||apples (we recommend: Noggins Corner Farm Market, Stirling Fruit Farms, Masstown Market or Scotian Gold Co-operative)|
|1 tsp||sea salt|
- In a large bowl toss chopped apples with brown sugar, lemon juice and water to coat – place in crockpot and cook on low overnight.
- The next morning, stir in pumpkin pie spice, sea salt, cinnamon and vanilla – cook 2 hours more with lid slightly ajar to allow steam to escape – jar and eat.
