Slow Cooker Applesauce

By Janet Eyring
Skip the store bought. Simmer homemade applesauce in your slow cooker instead.

Slow Cooker Applesauce


  • 3 pounds apples* (6-9), peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
  • 1 c. apple juice
  • 2 T granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of freshly ground nutmeg


Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. (Remembering to fill the slow cooker ½ - ¾ full.) Cover and cook until apples are very soft, about 6 hours on low or 3 ½ hours on high. When done, pour apples and juice into a food processor and blend until desired consistency. Serve warm or cold. Store unused portion covered tightly in the refrigerator. Makes 4 cups.

*Recommended apples: Jonagold, Pink Lady, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Empire, McIntosh, Rome Not Recommended: Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Braeburn, Honeycrisp
