“Spread made with blueberries and cooking apples, such as Gala or Granny Smith.” - by slturner55555
Original recipe yields 50 servings
- Place apples in a slow cooker. Cook on High, stirring occasionally, until apples are softened and broken down, about 3 hours. Add blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves; stir to combine. Lower temperature to Low. Simmer until apple butter is thickened, stirring often, 8 hours.
- Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack apple butter into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.
- Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 15 minutes.
- Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

"Hi. This is my recipe and I want to share a few tips I have learned making this recipe. When I made this in the spring and the blueberries were very sweet, 2 cups of sugar was just right for my fami..." See morely. When I made a batch later in the summer when the blueberries were a little tart, I found mixing tart cooking apples (Gala, Granny Smith) and some sweet apples (Honeycrisp and Fuji) to help make it naturally sweet. My advice is start with 2 cups sugar and add small amounts (1/4 cup) at a time to reach the sweetness you and your family will enjoy. I would also like to thank the Allrecipes.com kitchen staff for adding the directions on canning to my recipe."
