  • 20 apples
  • 1/4 cup sugar or less
  • 1 tsp cinnamon optional


  1. Core, peel and cut the apples into about 1-inch pieces.

  2. Add the apples and sugar (use less sugar if your apples are really sweet) to an 8-quart crockpot. I use anywhere between 2 tablespoons and 1/4 cup of sugar.

  3. Add the cinnamon if desired.

  4. Cover and cook the apples on LOW heat for 6 hours.

  5. For chunky applesauce, gently break up the apples with a wooden spoon or spatula. For smoother applesauce, blend the apples with an immersion blender.

  6. Transfer the applesauce to an air tight container. Refrigerate overnight before eating.
