The Easiest Applesauce Ever

I started making applesauce with this method to use up all the apples we got from Hackberry Hollow this fall. It makes a great “dessert” for Josie. She prefers to forgo a spoon and instead scoop it up with her fingers.

I have used sweet sixteens and fireside apples for this applesauce and find that I don’t need to add any sweetener. Other varieties of apples will work as well. You can add some sweetener if that suites your preference.

The Easiest Applesauce Ever

1- Peel, core, and cut applies into slices or chunks that are roughly the same size.

2- Place the apples in a crockpot and cook on low for around 6 hours OR high for around 4 hours. Stir once or twice during cooking to prevent apples from burning around the sides of the crockpot.

3- When the apples are fully softened, you can stir or puree them until they reach your desired consistency (I just stirred mine because I like it chunky).

4- Cool and store in the refrigerator or freeze.
