Homemade Applesauce Recipe

The first old fashioned homemade applesauce recipe is a favorite of mine and is cooked in the crock pot.

There is no need to "smash" the apples if you like it a bit chunky because the slow cooking will do it for you. It only takes 4-5 hours on high. Ready to get started? More apple recipes at the end of the page.

Homemade Applesauce Recipe for Crock Pot #MissHomemade

Crock Pot Applesauce Recipe



8 apples (any variety; your choice) - peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup water
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean, scraped
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg


Add the ingredients to the crock pot and cook on high for one hour.  Stir well and set temperature to low - cook for another 6 hours.  You may also cook it for 4 to 5 hours on high.

Works well with McIntosh, Rome, Jonathan or Golden Delicious.  Or you may use half red and half green apples for a depth of flavors. 

Sugar is up to you, this recipe does not have sugar in it.  I would add 1/2 cup or so if you do.  You may also taste it when it is done and add more then.  You can also use a potato masher for smoother consistency when it is done.

Serve warm over vanilla ice cream.

I have more than just a homemade applesauce recipe, check out more recipes below.
