Easy Yummy Homemade Applesauce

I made applesauce today.
It is delish.

10 cooking apples (we were given a bunch of 'em)
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2--1 cup sugar, depending on the tartness of your apples. Today I used 1/2 cup and it is plenty sweet.

Peel, core and slice apples.
Place in your crockpot.
Add other ingredients.
Cook on low for 8 hours, until very soft, stirring occasionally.

That's it!
So easy--and SO yummy!

I froze two containers and kept one in the fridge.
I probably could have just put them all in the fridge, as it made about 4 pints. Our kids really like applesause, and really like the homemade kind.

Granted, applesauce isn't all that expensive. But if you have an abundance of apples, or know someone who does, this is a great way to use them up!

  1. I just made applesauce this week too! Almost the same exact recipe but I cooked them on the stove. I also didn't peel the apples but I have a hand held chopper/puree' "thing" that smoothed it out. I like homemade applesauce to have a little texture to it and the skin keeps more nutrients. I didn't bother to freeze any because it will definitely get eaten quickly!!!
