Home made cinnamon sugar apple sauce

It really does not get much easier than this!

Fill a crock pot with chopped apples- big bite size. Add:
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T lemon juice
1 T cinnamon
Cook on low for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally, just until apples start to break down and mash easily when stirred. Then, transfer to a blender and combine for a just a bit; seriously it's a matter of seconds. Just until the apple sauce is fairly smooth. Serve warm or let chill in the fridge for later.


  1. I had no idea applesauce was so easy to make. My mom has a million apple trees. So, as soon as they are ready to be picked (which will be very soon) I will try this. Does the apple peel give it a weird texture at all?

    1. Hi Jenn! Nope, the apple peel does not give the apple sauce a weird texture one bit. Just saves a lot of time in peeling! I will tell you that I make apple sauce without the brown sugar and cinnamon if I plan on using it in baking recipes. :) We just like to add the good stuff when we're hoping for a nice treat to eat all by itself.
