This is a straight-forward apple sauce with no fancy ingredients. Just great apples and time.


  1. If you have a ricer, quarter and core the apples.
  2. Place apples in crockpot and cover with water.
  3. Sprinkle cinnamon on top as desired.
  4. After apples have cooked, mill through ricer removing skin and crushing.
  5. Sugar to taste.
  6. Serve warm or chilled.
  7. If you don't have a ricer, peel apples and proceed as directed, mashing apples after they are soft.
  8. My nephew insists on having this with baked ham!

This is so good. I used Winesap apples, straight from the orchard, peeled and cut in chunks. I covered with water, and cooked in a large pan, I needed to get them done within a few hours. I didn't need to add any sugar, they were perfect!!! Thanks!

Good applesauce! I added way to much water. Apparently, apples float, lol. I had to cook for about 16 hours to get to an applesauce consistency, which caused my applesauce to turn a dark brown. My kids wouldn't eat it plain, but I added it to muffins and pancakes! Thanks for a good recipe I will use again, just being mindful of the amount of water!
