Crock Pot Applesauce

Completed step #3
Doodle Bug loves applesauce, and I love to bake with applesauce as a replacement for oil. I figured, if I am baking with applesauce in order to have a healthier end result, I better start making my own applesauce so I know the exact ingredients. It's really not as difficult as you might think to make your own applesauce. All you need is a crock pot, and you can start the applesauce making wheels in motion.

  • 4 large apples (I like to use organic when I am cooking for Doodle Bug)
  • fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  1. Peel and core all apples.
  2. Put apples in crock pot with cinnamon stick, water, lemon juice (a few squirts), and diced up butter.
  3. Cook on high for 1 hour and 30 minutes- 2 hours.
  4. Pulse cooked mixture in food processor and let cool. 
  5. Store in large mason jar in refrigerator.
