It is that time of year…. time for Apples and Pumpkins! I love the smell of baking or cooking apples in my house. It just makes me feel so warm and comfy in the crisp fall weather. On a whim, Danyella and I stopped by one of the local fresh farm stands, Piazza Farms, on our way home from dance last weekend. On Sunday, I debated what I wanted to make with the apples plus what I wanted to make for dinner. I found pork chops in my freezer and the rest was history…. I needed homemade applesauce to go with my pork chops!
When you make this, you can adjust the recipe to make more and can the applesauce for future enjoyment! I made notes on how to add some of the ingredients to increase the recipe. Enjoy!
Homemade Crockpot Applesauce
A delicious fall homemade applesauce recipe that you can easily make in your crockpot and enjoy the apple scent.
- 5-6 apples, I prefer Gala or Jonagold
- 1/2 cup of sugar per 5-6 apples
- 1/2 cup water per 5-6 apples
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Peel, slice and dice your apples. I love my apple peeler, corer, slicer for this
- Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a bowl.
- Add the apples and sugar mix to the crockpot and mix so the apples are well coated with the sugar mixture.
- Add the water.
- Put the crockpot on high, cover and cook for 4 hours.
- Keep mixing the apples. If the applesauce feels to watery, leave the crockpot lid off for a while.
- I prefer to mash the apples down as they cook so you get some chunks and some creamy applesauce.
- Enjoy with a meal or on its own!
