I put mine in the crockpot and let it cook until it is thick. It takes a while but it works.

I think maybe the apple butter needs to be reduced more...cooked longer.

My crockpot has a removable crock. The easiest way to thicken apple butter is to put it in the crock in a 350º oven without a lid. Stir it occasionally until it is as thick as you like it.

Thank you Harlean! I haven't had issues with thickness before, but there is always a first time. I also have a crockpot with a removable crock. I will do ask you advise and put the put in the oven at 350 and see how it does. I will reply and let you know the outcome. Many thanks.

Cornstarch will work, or you can let it thicken with the apple's natural thickener, pectin. Just continue to cook the butter slowly and stir constantly.

You can try cooking it at a lower heat or in a crock pot. Also try adding some cornstarch.

I've just made two batches this past Fall for the first time--the best way to thicken it is to just put the pot or crockpot at it's lowest heat, UNCOVER (I noticed the other posts don't say this!) and continue cooking, stirring once in awhile. A few hours more cooking will let the water/steam out, which will naturally thicken the apple butter. Good luck!

Thank you. This makes sense to uncover it.

I cook mine in a roaster in the oven for several hours and it thickens on its own by cooking out the excess liquid.

Hi everyone, so I thought after cooling my apple butter in the fridge it would thicken. I've never made it before. Can I put it back in a crock pot to reduce the liquid or do you think it's toast??

I would turn the crockpot up to high and see if you can get the mixture to thicken. It must have had too much moisture.

Good luck, I hope it finally turns out.
