Peach Applesauce

Recipe by Chef Pooh 2
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • I start out peeling/cutting apples using my apple peeler/slicer/corer device. As I take them off the device, I put them in a bowl, sprinkle lemon juice and fruit fresh. I keep doing this until I have enough to start my batch of applesauce.
  • Next I put 2 cans of peaches with their juices, some of the apples and blend in a blender at one of the higher speeds.
  • You may not need sugar. I omitted it the last time I made the applesauce.
  • Play it by ear also if you think you need water.
  • Pour into crockpot or dutch oven.
  • Note: I do several different batches, so I'm cooking one batch on the stove in my dutch oven on medium high heat/medium and one in the crock pot. I cook it long enough to be hot enough to pour into canning jars.
  • Repeat blending process with what's left of your apples and peaches.
  • Pour into crock pot or dutch oven.
  • Add vanilla extract, ground ginger.
  • Add optional cinnamon. I used my Korintje cinnamon. You'll have to taste it and see if you want to add cinnamon.
  • If adding sugar, now's the time to add.
  • Meanwhile wash canning jars, lids, and bands.
  • Sterilize in hot water bath.
  • Then take out a few jars at a time, pour applesauce in jars. Put lids and bands on, screw tight, place in water bath for 25 minutes.
  • Take out, make sure lids have sealed by pressing lid. I listen for popping sounds and count. If I come across a jar or two that didn't seal, I'll rebath them or even put in a clean jar with new lid. Read your canning instructions that come with jars.
