Crock Pot Applesauce

Crock Pot Applesauce

Roughly chop as many apples as you desire.
We used unpeeled Granny Smiths and one Gala.
The peels get very soft when cooked, but if they bother you, peel the apples.

Fill the crock pot with apples.
Sprinkle with a bit of lemon juice.
Mix to coat the apples.
Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Sugar can be added, but we don't use it.

Cook on High until desired consistency.
Ours was ready in 3 hours.

Mmmm, hot chunky applesauce.
Perfect to serve with potato pancakes.
We did not make any potato pancakes.
We ate it hot.
We ate it cold.
We ate it nine days old.
Just making sure you are paying attention.

It was very, very yummy. At least I thought so. BG did not agree She sent me an email, just in case I didn't understand the signs for "Yuck, why did I bother chopping apples, when I could have been texting friends?"

Sorry, I don't like that applesauce. It taste not tasty. I like Mott's applesauce.
I do not like what we made.

Make at your own risk! To me, this was the best applesauce I have ever tasted. I will not return to making applesauce on the stove.

Linking to some of these great sites:


  1. LOL! I think I prefer your version to Mott's, Lisa! It looks pretty tasty to me. :-)

    Thanks for sharing...



  2. I have everything in the house except the apples, so I can't make it today. I am admiring your stainless steel crockpot however and the raised lid holder :)

  3. I have tried apple butter in the crock pot and it turns our pretty well.

  4. How very Seussical of you! This looks great and I bet it's better for you than Mott's! I'll have to try this one-I love crock pot recipes!

  5. I have not made homemade applesauce before, and I love the crock pot idea! I guess every one has their own opinion about food...if you think it was great, I'm sure it was! Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Don't give up on your applesauce Lisa!! I make a massive batch of this up at the start of every month - one of apples and one of pears - and freeze them in little ice cube trays. Baby Kay gets 2 wee cubes defrosted and mixed in with her morning porridge every day and LOVES it! You would be a big hit with my girl!! I'll take BG swimming and you can feed my Baby Kay!!

  9. Bless you heart, all that work and no thanks from the kiddo. It does sound great.

  10. Wait. I can make applesauce in my crockpot? The crockpot I love so dearly? And it's this easy? I'm soooo buying apples when I get to Caputo's!
