Have you ever made a Paleo apple butter? One of my favorite memories from when I was younger is going apple picking. I love everything about it including the smell of fall, climbing up and down the ladder to get the apples and the delicious, crisp taste of your first fall apple. Once you get back from apple picking with your bushel or two of apples, the question starts to be “What the heck am I going to do with all these apples?” paleo apple butter

Many apple butter recipes use apple cider. Those following the paleo diet try to avoid drinking juices due to the high sugar content and processing.  This Paleo Apple Butter recipe doesn’t require apple cider and instead uses apple cider vinegar.

What I love most about this Paleo Apple Butter recipe (besides that it’s good for you) is the fact that I can make it in the slow cooker. I love it when I find things that are good for you don’t take hours to do.

If you’re not following the Paleo diet, you can enjoy this on toast for breakfast. It’s great by the spoonful right out of the jar or stirred into plain Greek yogurt. If you still have extra apples, you can try my apple granola crisp recipe.
