Return mixture to slow cooker and stir in syrup, vanilla, and salt. Prop lid ajar and continue to cook on Low for 4 more hours, or until fruit butter is thickened. Add a splash of apple cider vinegar, if you wish.
Cool and transfer butter to sterilized jars. Seal and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 4 months.
