Use up fresh or canned tomatoes with this delicious & flavorful Crock-Pot Sweet Tomato Butter. Serve with crackers or bread!
Slow Cooker Sweet Tomato Butter
Tomatoes are technically a fruit (I mean they have seeds) so I got to thinking that I should make a sweet tomato butter. Just like any other fruit butter like apple butter or blueberry butter you can easily make this in your slow cooker.
For this tomato butter I prefer to use a slow cooker that has a WARM feature so that you can cook it down and let it thicken and evaporate without the butter burning. But of course you can use a slow cooker and cook this on the LOW setting too. You just have to “babysit” it a little bit more.
The flavor of this fruit butter is sweet yet tart and full of tomato flavor. You can eat it on your morning toast just like any fruit butter but it is also REALLY good on a bagel with cream cheese. My husband even spread it on some garlic bread and let me have a taste…YUM!
I decided to can this tomato butter up in a single 16 ounce canning jar for a small batch canning session. But you could also put it up in smaller 4 ounce canning jars. Or if canning is not your thing, just pop the tomato butter in a food safe storage container and stash it away in your fridge or freezer.

How Many Servings Does This Recipe Make?

Do I Need To Remove The Seeds From The Tomatoes?
You do not need to remove the tomato seeds from the fresh tomatoes. However you can if you wish to. After pureeing the tomatoes simply press the puree through a fine mesh strainer and discard the seeds.
