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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 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.

When my sister showed me this recipe I thought it sounded terrible. Turmeric? Coriander? Yuck! But I made up a batch I used cheep very sweet apples (in season from the farm market ) so I cut down on the sugar. WOW! I still prefer "apple pie spiced" apple butter But this is quite good and makes a pleasant change. The rest of my family all adore this stuff. Gave a jar to the neighbor and she wanted the recipe. It is a huge hit and easy to make. I burnt the first batch a tiny bit no one noticed but me. I have to say I thought my husband would hate this but he loves it. If you are afraid of the turmeric and coriander overpowering the taste don't be. The taste is interesting but not what you'd expect from reading the ingredients. One batch i had some extra apples so i added an extra quarter teaspoon of ground cinnamon and left the rest of the recipe alone. worked out perfectly. Read More

This is amazing. I have made it without sugar and used a few sweeter apples and it was delicious! I love to put it on top of my morning oatmeal! Read More
