Crock Pot Applesauce

Nothing beats homemade apple sauce, making it in the crock pot is easy and your house will smell divine while the apples and cinnamon simmer all day long. The hardest part about making this sauce is peeling the apples (which is not hard at all!). I love using it in my homemade Applesauce Nut Bread, or with Pork Chops and Apple Sauce, so good!

How Do You Make Homemade Applesauce?

Start with apples. I love using a variety of apples to make applesauce, for this recipe I used eight different apples; Honey Crisp, Fuji, Gala, Macous, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Braeburn, and Granny Smith. Gravenstein, McIntosh, Jonagold and Jonathan would also be great options.

I use just a touch of sugar, but if your apples are sweet and you wish to make apple with no sugar, it will still be delicious.
