Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 16-20 ounces
  • 3 to 4 lbs apples which equals about 10-12 apples, any kind, any flavor
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon *Note* this makes the applesauce have a strong cinnamon flavor. For a more subtle flavor cut down to ½ teaspoon
  • ½ cup white sugar (or substitute with agave nectar) if using tart apples. If using a sweeter variety, sugar may be omitted.
  1. Peel, core and thinly slice apples. Fill that slow cooker up! Pack the apples in because they cook down significantly.
  2. Place in slow cooker and add sugar, and cinnamon, toss to coat. Add water and stir well.
  3. Heat on high 4-6 hours or low 8-10 hours.
  4. Remove lid to cool and slowly stir. If desired, mash apples with a potato masher.
