How to Make Applesauce In a Crockpot

There is nothing better than making all of your foods homemade. When making all of your food yourself, you get to control what is in it and what isn’t. I recently experimented when making some homemade applesauce and it came out so good, I had to share the recipe.

How to Make Applesauce

Apple Sauce SCD Recipe

One of my favorite things about this homemade applesauce recipe is that it can be made using a CrockPot . It just doesn’t get much easier than that!

We recently had a friend of ours with an apple tree tell us that she was sick of apples and wasn’t going to use the rest of the apples that are still on the trees. After a busy week we were only left with time to collect these apples after it has already gotten dark but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from getting free apples.

All I could think about along the way was all of the possibilities of delicious apple recipes like pies, apple flours, and I was especially excited to try making homemade applesauce in my crockpot.

So after roaming around in the dark with a flashlight we managed to collect two buckets of red delicious apples.

It took quite a while to peel all of them for cooking but it was well worth the effort. Plus it made me start looking into a better option and I found out that KitchenAid makes a spiralizer attachment and it just clicks right onto your mixer and peels,cores, and spiralizer fruits or veggies in minutes. Needless to say, that handy little product has made it to my Christmas list this year.

All you will need to make applesauce in a crockpot is these ingredients:

5 lbs of Peeled Apples

1/2 Cup of Honey

2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon

3/4 of a Cup of Water

SCD Applesauce

Peel about 5 lbs of apples and add them to a CrockPot  set on high. Add all of the other ingredients and cook on high for about 7 hours.

After the applesauce has been cooked thoroughly, you will have an apple cider type liquid in the CrockPot . You can drain this out and use it for other recipes, drink it, or throw it away. I just like to add a little extra water to prevent things from burning to the crockpot and the liquid increases as the apples cook.

After draining the excess liquid, put the applesauce into a blender and then refrigerate until cool.

Your house is going to smell amazing for several days even after you have eaten all of the homemade applesauce. This would make a great DIY gift this holiday season so don’t forget your friends and family when making your homemade applesauce.

    I have never tried crock pot applesauce. However, I love applesauce and am thinking this would make my house smell delicious. Totally on my to do list for this winter.

  22. I’ve never made applesauce in the crockpot, but when my boys were babies I did make them applesauce as baby food and I just steamed them in my fancy little baby bullet steamer. It was great fun, but now that I have no more babies I will have to give this a try! They all LOVE applesauce!

  23. I am going to have to try this recipe I never have cooked applesauce in the crockpot. Would be so much easier
