Slow Cooker Applesauce

  • Cooking Time:

    2 hours
  • Servings:



6 apples (cook­ing, peeled and quar­tered)
1/4 c. water
Option­al: up to 1/4 c. brown sug­ar
1/4 tsp. ground cin­na­mon
1/8 tsp. ground nut­meg

I first made apple­sauce at home when my daugh­ter was a baby.  (The baby food ver­sion of this is sim­ply apples and water.)  I quick­ly real­ized how much bet­ter the home­made apple­sauce was than any­thing I had ever tast­ed from the gro­cery store.  So, I made this “grown up” ver­sion of apple­sauce for my hus­band and me — and now my daugh­ter (who is no longer a baby) enjoys this ver­sion too.  (NOTE: You can add brown sug­ar if need­ed for sweet­ness yet I find that if my apples are ripe enough, no sug­ar is need­ed!)

  1. Mix all ingre­di­ents in a 3 1/2 quart slow cook­er.
  2. Cov­er and Cook on High for 2 hours or until apples are ten­der.
  3. Place apple mix­ture in a blender or food proces­sor and puree until it reach­es your desired tex­ture.

Option­al: You can dou­ble or even triple this recipe, just adjust the slow cook­er size so it’s no more than 1/2 — 2/3 full when cook­ing.

I just made this and let me say it is won­der­ful! My son just told me it is amaz­ing! That is a huge com­pli­ment from him.


I am mak­ing this tomor­row! So excit­ed!! I have only ever made unsweet­ened cin­na­mon apple­sauce on the stove. This sounds SO good though!! Thank you for post­ing the recipe!


Is there a cer­tain type of apple that this works bet­ter with?


Do you have a recipe for this using pears?

I have some very small apples from a neigh­bor. Can you tell me about how many cups are your 6 apples peeled and cut up? Thanks!
