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! It can be eaten by the spoonful, on top of your Thanksgiving turkey or on a piece of toast. Seriously, this stuff disappears! 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?

Description

Cranberry Apple Butter is a decadent mix of cinnamon, apples, cranberries and apple cider cooked low and slow. Blended until smooth, the Cranberry Apple Butter is then cooked until caramelized. The perfect addition to a holiday table or smeared on a toasted English muffin!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 honeycrisp apples peeled, cored and diced
  • 12 oz cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Place all of the ingredients together in a slow cooker and gently stir to combine. Cook on high for 4 hours. Carefully transfer everything to a blender and blend until smooth.
