Making your own Slow Cooker Applesauce couldn’t be easier with just ONE ingredient! A healthy and delicious snack for kids that’s easy to make, right in your Crockpot!
Slow Cooker Applesauce
Making your own Slow Cooker Applesauce is super easy. And I mean really, REALLY easy. There’s just ONE ingredient! Just peel, core, and chop your apples, throw them in the Crockpot and voila! Slow Cooker Applesauce!
Slow Cooker Applesauce makes a great snack for kids. It’s also freezer friendly. Just store it in a covered freezer container until ready for use.
For a chunkier Slow Cooker Applesauce, use a potato masher to mash them up when the apples are done cooking. Or for a thinner Slow Cooker Applesauce process it in the food processor.
I usually leave my Slow Cooker Applesauce unsweetened, and just use a sweeter apple, like Gala or Golden Delicious. But you can also add some sugar to it if you’d like. Just a half cup of sugar for all 6 pounds of apples should do the trick.

Slow Cooker Applesauce Recipe
- 6 pounds sweet apples I usually use Gala, peeled, cored, and diced
- 1/2 cup sugar
Toss the apples into the Crockpot. (Add sugar now too, if you want to sweeten it)
Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until apples are very soft, stirring every hour or two.
When the apples are cooked through, puree them in a blender or food processor, for a thin applesauce. Depending on the size of your processor, you may need to puree in several batches. For a chunkier applesauce, mash the apples with a potato masher. If you find your applesauce is too thick just add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it reaches the desired consistency.
Store in covered containers. If freezing, place in a freezer safe container until ready for use.
