Farmhouse Apple Sauce

Total time: 
Serves: 3 Jars
This apple sauce is the perfect accompaniment to any meal. You can get 2-3 batches going at once in your crock pots and have plenty to jar and save for later! This is a great way to use older apples you've bought or picked - even if they are getting to be a little mushy. Still perfectly good to make sauce with!

  • 6 pounds apples, peeled and sliced
  • ¾ cup water per crock pot
  • cinnamon, if desired, to taste
  1. Place the sliced apples and water in a crock pot. Cover and cook on "low" for 6-8 hours. As the apples cook down they will shrink and become fragrant.
  2. When the apples are soft (a fork will go right through them), mix with an electric beater.
  3. Add cinnamon if desired.
  4. Add more water if desired to make a thinner sauce. Mix less if a chunky sauce is desired.
  5. To can the applesauce, ladle it into mason jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace before putting the lids on.
  6. Let cool completely and make sure the jars are sealed before storing in a cool dark place, like a pantry.
