Alphabe Thursday: Letter B - Butter

Click Here

B is for Butter. I’m no Paula Deen so this post won’t be about how to turn two sticks of sweet creamy Butter into something wonderfully
decadent and delicious.

One of my favorite aspects of Blogging is meeting phenomenally creative, gracious, and compassionate fellow-Bloggers. All of you are so encouraging, complimentary, and inspiring.

Recently, I posted about our trip to the
apple orchard and how many apples I have. Lynn from Happier Than a Pig in Mud commented that I should make Crock Pot Apple Butter. I thought you had to have a copper kettle to make apple Butter. Turns out, you don’t!

I found this recipe on and it is easy and delicious. I also tried making it with Splenda instead of sugar.

I hope you enjoy it.


Approximately 3 pounds apples
3 Cups Sugar
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Allspice
1/2 Teaspoon Cloves
Dash of Salt
3/4 Cup Water

Fill crockpot 3/4 to top with apples (peeled and sliced). Add remaining ingredients and stir to evenly coat apples. Cover and cook on low overnight.

In the morning...

Fresh apple Butter for your toast. Yum!


  1. Hi La! I'm so happy the apple butter turned out well for you! Nice and easy and I know the house smelled soooo good:@)

  2. yum! I'm going to have to pass this recipe along to my Mother in law. She loves apple butter!

    Thanks La!

  3. My husband said "No Way, you're not going to cook that overnight, I'll never get any sleep" Think I might do it just to mess with used to make bread in the breadmaker overnight and he would have it out and sliced by 4 am. I'm not going to mention how much weight we gained. I'll try this, looks good, but do it during the day and maybe plug the crockpot on the deck.

  4. You had me at "butter". There is nothing better!

  5. Nab that is some good looking Apple butter and sauce!!~ I truly love the smells and feel of this time of year. I like to make apple crisp. Weather clearing up here, YAY!!~

  6. NAB??? I meant to type MAN!!~ Oh that is what I get for rushing and typing sorry for the blunder:)

  7. Yay! I love your recipe and have signed on to follow!
    Happy Thursday!

  8. Oh it turned out looking delicious and how I wish I had some!

  9. La,
    My kids would love this and crockpotting makes it easy! Thanks for responding to my 'haunting time poem." That was fun. I am giving clues at the end of each table; last week, this week, and next week which will tell you what tablescapes and full room decor I am doing for Halloween.;) Sneaky aren't I.

  10. Oh wow! I think I could actually do that! Can you imagine waking up to that on Christmas morning?!

    I'm trying it. Soon.

    And thanks.


  11. Hi La! I grew up eating my grandmother's homemade apple butter, so I will definitely try this one! Have a great weekend...hugs...Debbie

  12. Great letter "B" post! It looks so yummy. Very Fallish :-)

  13. Looks yummy!

  14. I love your post. I love your blog! But most of all I LOVE all these pumpkins!

  15. Does that ever sound wonderful! I bet the house smelled fabulous all night long. I would have been up frequently during the night, making forays for samples, believe me.

  16. Oh yeah, that's something I could certainly get into in a big way! Gotta try it!

  17. Oh, I think my house would smell so good all night long, and then in the am I could enjoy a nice piece of toast with the apple butter.... YUM!

  18. Wow! I love apple butter! That looks wonderful! I would not want to peel and slice all 3 pds of Apples but it sure looks worth all the effort! I bet it smelled great too! Enjoy!

  19. Now this one, I'll try. I think I'm going back to the orchard tomorrow. Yummy!

  20. Mmmm...Looks so tasty! Definitely need to put this on my list of recipes to try! :)

  21. did not know it was so easy to it...bkm

  22. How awesome! I didn't know you could do it this way! I am going to get some apples and make my own! Just stopping by from Ms. Jenny's class!

  23. We always had apple butter on the table when I was growing up. My mum couldn't always get strawberries or raspberries but she could always get lots of apples and choke cherries, so we'd have apple butter and choke cherry jelly with our toast and cereal.

  24. Oh, what a delicious looking recipe! You're right. This is one scrumptious post! I think Paula would probably add two sticks of butter to that recipe...wonder how that would taste? ha!

    Thanks for linking.

    This was a fun post!


  25. My Dad would FLIP if I made this for him. I can't wait to surprise him for Christmas. Thanks for the recipe!!!

  26. And I bet your house does smell so yummy by morning! Fabulous recipe! Thanks!

  27. we make applesauce and apple pie filling every year. I have made and canned Apple butter in the past, which is a lot of work. this sounds so easy. Did the Splenda work? hubby is diabetic?
    Thanks for sharing this!

  28. Apple butter is so fall, don't you think. I love the smell and the making of it. Thanks for posting to Crock Pot Wednesday and hope to see you there again this week.

  29. Thanks for linking up to This Week's Cravings!
