I love homemade apple sauce and make it every year.

Last year was the first time I used my crock. LOVE it.


Here is what I did last year...


10 to 14 apples (depending on size) peeled, cored & chopped. (I made a few batches & used different apples...granny smith, macintosh, gala...I really liked it with a few of each)


spoonful of brown sugar...

1 tablespoon cinnamon

** I made a batch with added strawberries, blueberries or peaches too... all were yummy...


*add all ingredients to slow cooker... cook on high 3 hours and then 2 hours on low. stir & serve.

One batch didnt seem to have enough juice so I added a few tablespoons of water or juice..

** this also freezes VERY well.. Just put into serving sizes, cover & freeze, thaw in the fridge.

Mine made more than that... Enough for me to share...

I would say it all depends on the number & size of the apples. They do cook down... but not that much.

Also, do I chop them up real fine, or is it ok to leave some chunks, my family likes chunky applesause.

Yum! This sounds really good. I will have to pick up extra apples next time I go shopping so that we can make some.

 Are you the one that gave the five crock-pot freezer recipes recently? If so, I tried that honey-garlic one and just wanted to say it was the freaking BOMB! We are officially never buying chinese take-out again. Can't wait to try the others!
