Applesauce (Crock Pot)
This smells great while it's cooking and is really nice served warm with roast pork. I found this recipe in the Sunset Crockery Cookbook.
- Ready In:
- 7hrs 20mins
- 1 1⁄2 lbs medium size golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- freshly ground nutmeg
- Spread apple slices in a 3-quart or larger slow-cooker (crock pot).
- Sprinkle with sugar; insert cinnamon stick down between apples.
- Drizzle with lemon juice.
- Cover and cook on low until apples form a thick sauce, about 6 1/2 to 8 hours.
- Remove and discard cinnamon stick.
- Sprinkle with nutmeg.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.

Fantastic! The cinnamon stick was perfect. It was pretty sweet so if you prefer a less sweet applesauce than I would certainly reduce the sugar to 1/2 of what is called for, but my husband and I personally liked the sweetness so I cook the recipe as it is. I am making it for the second time in the last few days!Reply
The taste of this dish is still in my mouth as I type this. Sooooooo good! I used organic sucanat for my sugar. Its not as sweet as white or brown...to me anyway. I diced the apples, used the juice of half a lemon and half a orange. I also added a pinch of salt. Took my potaato masher to it before removing from crock pot. Boy, I don't think I will have any left over to freeze...I'm going back for some more just as soon as I finish this!1Reply
VERY VERY cinnamon-y. We like our applesauce with cinnamon, but this was a bit too much for my husband, who would not eat it. I felt it tasted more like a pie filling or cobbler or apple butter. It was a little strong to eat by itself (and I even lowered the sugar to 1/4 cup). Still tasty, just a little too much so.Reply
