Crockpot Applesauce

I had a bunch of apples sitting around from my trip to the farmers market last Saturday.  I bought (and used in this applesauce) Empire Apples.  The reason?  They are a good apple for eating & for cooking with, and when I bought the apples I wasn't totally sure what I wanted to use them for.  If you've never had homemade applesauce and own a crockpot, I really recommend you try making this.  You can either have your crockpot on high for 4 hours (what I did) or on low for 8 to 10 hours.


  • 1 peck of apples (about 10 to 12 apples)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 2 TBPS (more or less to taste) of ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup apple cider
  • a dash of salt


  1. Peel and core the apples, cut into quarter inch slices.  Put in crockpot.
  2. Pour sugar, water, apple cider, and spices over top of the apples and combine with a spoon.
  3. Let cook for desired amount of time (3-4 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low).
  4. After done cooking, mash with a potato masher if you want to have a "chunkier" texture or mash the apples, wait for them to cool, and puree in your food processor or blender (I just did this).
  5. ENJOY!
