PP: Cinnamon Apple Topping/Butter

Chef:  Denise Kling-Pelto
Makes:  12 cups
Prep Time:  30 Minutes
Cook Time:  In slow cooker 4-6 hours







  • ½ peck Golden Delicious (perfect sweetness)
  • ½ c water
  • 1 T Cinnamon
  • ½ t nutmeg


  1. Turn slow cooker/crock pot on high setting for the first 2 hours, then low for the remaining time.
  2. Put ½ c water into the crock pot
  3. Peel and core the apples and slice if you want a chunky topping/butter.  ~or~ leave peelings on, core and slice and run finished topping/butter through a blender.  (Peelings become very tough and leathery)  
  4. Place apple slices in slow cooker.
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over apples.
  6. Cover
  7. Stir intermittently


  1. I give this as part of a vegan gift package during the holidays.  It is very difficult to find an apple topping/butter without added sugar.
  2. Put this in your oatmeal or to top anything with a sweet warm finish.
