2. Select Slow Cook on High for 2 hours and cook uncovered. This time is an estimate – it can be anywhere from 1 to 4 hours. You want the apple butter to be nicely thickened until it is spreadable.

3. Cool apple butter to room temperature and enjoy on toast, stirred into oatmeal, or on top of pancakes or waffles.
