  • 3 +lb bag of apples any flavor, I like Granny Smith
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened apple juice or white grape juice or water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Peel the apples (optional). I don't peel the apples, because I like keeping the extra fiber in the applesauce. Plus, I use an immersion blender so the peels are unnoticeable. However, if peels bother you, then you can remove them.
  • Slice up the apples, and place them in the crockpot. I can usually fit 8 apples in the crockpot at a time, and it makes almost 2 quarts of applesauce.
  • The next step is to mix the apple juice or water with the cinnamon and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  • Then, pour the mixture over the apples and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours.


I love using Granny Smith apples for this recipe. I know Granny Smith is a little more sour than other apples but it gave the crockpot applesauce a really nice flavor without being too sweet like a lot of applesauce is.
