Slow Cooker Apple Sauce Recipe
Homemade applesauce is so simple to make in your slow cooker! My Slow Cooker Applesauce Recipe only takes 5 simple ingredients and is perfect for using up extra apples you may have.
Servings 4 cups
- 3 lbs apples I used Macintosh
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon optional (add more or less according to your taste)
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Peel the apples with a vegetable peeler. Quarter them through the stem, then cut out the cores. Dice the apples into 1- to 2-inch pieces.
Place the apples in a slow cooker and then add the water, cinnamon, lemon juice, and salt. Stir all the ingredients well to combine.
Cook on the high setting for 4 hours.
Using an immersion blender, puree the applesauce until it gets a very smooth texture. However, if you like chunky applesauce you can skip this step.
Let the applesauce cool to room temperature, serve and enjoy!
Store in airtight containers (I prefer to use glass containers) in the refrigerator for up to 7 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
