Crock Pot Applesauce

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 6 hr

This crockpot applesauce is a perfect blend of apples and spices slow cooked in the crock pot to create an applesauce that will take you back to your childhood.


  • 10 apples peeled, cored and cubed
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 heaping tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1 ground vanilla bean (pure vanilla extract would work too)
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Throw everything in the crock pot.
  2. Cook on high for the first hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. Then turn to low and cook for another 6 hours or so.


Recipe Notes

The longer the better. I like my applesauce chunky, but if you like it smooth you can blend it at the end. That’s it. Your house will smell better than any Yankee Candle ever would!
