Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato Apple Butter

Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato Apple Butter relies on the same flavors as you find in pumpkin butter or pumpkin pie, for that matter.


  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 6 apples peeled, cored and quartered
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Add sweet potatoes and apples to a slow-cooker.
  • Add next five ingredients.
  • Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours.
  • Remove cover and puree with an immersion blender. You may use a blender or food processor but take care transferring the hot mixture.
  • Taste for sweetening and season and adjust accordingly.
  • If mixture is too soupy for your liking, turn the slow-cooker to high, leave uncovered and cook, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Add one tablespoon of vanilla extract and stir.
  • Spoon into jars or storage containers.  
  • Refrigerate or freeze. 
  • Keeps in refrigerator for about 3 weeks.
