Homemade Crock Pot Applesauce

I never thought homemade apple sauce would be so EASY!!  Not to mention the wonderful aroma that filled the house during the simmering in my crock pot.  It was a frugal win and super fun to make!

Here’s what you will need!

  • 8 medium apples (Use a combination of Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Fuji, Gala, etc.)
  • 1 strips of lemon peel – use a vegetable peeler
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 inch cinnamon stick (I found mine at the dollar store)
  • 5 tsp light brown sugar (unpacked) – or agave

First, Peel, core, and slice the apples.   The hardest part about making this sauce is the peeling.  I was thankful to have my friend Tina come to the rescue and help me though:)

Set crock pot to low and cook for 6 hours. Stir apples occasionally, apples will slowly become a delicious applesauce.  apple sauce 4Just in case you were wondering, this is what it looks like at the half way mark!

Remove cinnamon stick and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth or if you prefer a chunky sauce, leave sauce intact.

ENJOY!
