Slow-Cooker Chai Apple Butter
7 h 45 m
“Seasoned with spices inspired by chai tea, this slow-cooker apple butter can be slathered on your favorite toast, served with a fall cheese plate or stirred into yogurt.”
5 pounds apples, such as Ananas Reinette or McIntosh, peeled and sliced ( ½ inch thick; about 16 cups)
⅔ cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cardamom
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
½ teaspoon salt
1Combine apples, brown sugar, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric and salt in a 6-quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook, stirring once or twice, for 5 hours on High. Set the lid ajar and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the apples are almost broken down, about 2 hours more. If desired, puree in a food processor until smooth.
For easy cleanup, try a slow-cooker liner. These heat-resistant, disposable liners fit neatly inside the insert and help prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.
