Our girls love applesauce, so today we made our own! 2 weeks ago Meijer had apples on sale for .49lb so I grabbed a few extra pounds to make sure we could make some applesauce. You only need a few ingredients to make a great tasting homemade applesauce!

Homemade Applesauce

3/4 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Vanilla
8 – 10 Apples peeled, cored and cut into cubes

Turn your crock pot and on high and add water, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Peel and core your apples to get ready for the crockpot. Either slice or cut your apples into cubes and toss them into the pot!

Mix all ingredients together in crock pot. Leave it covered on high for 3-4 hours.

After 3-4 hours you will see your apples turn to mush and ready to smash into applesauce. Our girls like it a little chunky so I use a fork and mash the whole pieces of apple just a little to make it look more like applesauce. If you want a smoother applesauce you can use a mixer on low to get a better consistency. Since this is our first batch of homemade applesauce I only made 1 batch to see how it turned out. Since the whole family loved it, I think this will become a addition to our jar gifts that we make for Christmas gifts!

  1. I amhat is why I am really not a susy homemaker by any means, that is why I need to ask you this silly question. You mentioned doing this for Christmas gifts. I like that idea, but what do you use for packaging the applesauce (jars, containers, etc..). And if you cook in crockpot, do they have to go through the whole canning process if you are putting in jars. Help me please. : ) DD (Michigan)

    • No worries, I will put them in a jar for Christmas gifts. And yes you will need to do the whole canning process, but it is actually a fairly easy task. Basically if you have the jars/lids and a pot to boil water in, you can pretty much can anything. Hopefully I will be able to get a post up about it soon but until then do a search online or even you tube and see how to do it! I was really scarred to try it and then watched my mom a few months ago and it was not as bad as I thought!! Let me know how it works out!!
