We love applesauce in our house! It is a healthy, yummy, easy treat. We purchase it pretty often, but we also love to make it. The kids are proud when they are able to help. Here is a super easy recipe for applesauce in the Crockpot.

  • What You Need:
    • Crockpot
    • Peeler
    • Apple Corer/ Knife
    • Masher/ Whisk
    • 12 Apples (Mix Different Types)
    • 1 Cup Water
    • Dash Cinnamon
    • Dash Sea Salt (Optional)
    • Honey (Optional)
    • Fresh Squeezed Lemon (Optional)
  1. Wash apples in water and vinegar.
  2. Peel and slice apples. We use an apple corer and a peeler to make it easier, but a knife will work too.
  3. Place peeled, sliced apples in the crockpot.
  4. Add water.
  5. Add sea salt and cinnamon.
  6. Drizzle with honey. This makes it sweet and extra delicious, but we sometimes skip this step to avoid the sugar.
  7. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours. I usually check it around 2.5 hours, stir it, and decide how much longer it needs. It will get soft enough that it stirs into an applesauce consistency easily.
  8. Squeeze in fresh lemon juice. This helps the applesauce from turning as brown, and we think it tastes better when we add lemon.
  9. Use a masher or whisk to stir it to the consistency you like. If you or your children prefer it really smooth, you can use your food processor.
  10. Allow it to cool and portion it into containers.
  11. Enjoy!
