I was honestly shocked by how much of a crowd pleaser this Cranberry Apple Butter ended up being! Everyone couldn’t keep their hands off of it – even the kids!

Plus, it wonderfully takes the place of a classic cranberry dish on your holiday table. The apples are the perfectly sweet companion to the tangy cranberries. It was a match meant to be.

I’ve made this recipe several times already and am amazed by the results every time. You simply put all of the ingredients into a slow cooker and let it do the work from there. Your house will smell AMAZING! No candles needed here. Cranberry Apple Butter can be made the day of or in advance and can be eaten warm or cold. How is it not a winner?
