Overnight Crock-Pot Pumpkin Apple Butter


  • 3 pounds apples (use a mix of sweet and tart – we used half honeycrisp and half granny smith)
  • 2 15 oz cans pumpkin puree (make sure to get the pure pumpkin puree, not the pumpkin pie filling)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • A few pinches salt


  1. Peel and dice your apples
  2. Add the apples + all other ingredients to your crock pot. Stir together until everything is evenly combined
  3. Cook on low for 11 hours (we make it at night and let it cook while we sleep!)
  4. When the 11 hours are up, remove the lid and puree until completely and totally smooth with an immersion blender (stick blender)
  5. Spoon into jars or tupperwares and you’re all done!


If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can spoon this into a regular blender or food processor and puree in batches
