Homemade Applesauce Recipe

It is that time of year…. time for Apples and Pumpkins! I love the smell of baking or cooking apples in my house. It just makes me feel so warm and comfy in the crisp fall weather. On a whim, Danyella and I stopped by one of the local fresh farm stands, Piazza Farms, on our way home from dance last weekend. On Sunday, I debated what I wanted to make with the apples plus what I wanted to make for dinner. I found pork chops in my freezer and the rest was history…. I needed homemade applesauce to go with my pork chops!

When you make this, you can adjust the recipe to make more and can the applesauce for future enjoyment! I made notes on how to add some of the ingredients to increase the recipe. Enjoy!

A delicious fall homemade applesauce recipe that you can easily make in your crockpot and enjoy the apple scent.


  • 5-6 apples, I prefer Gala or Jonagold
  • 1/2 cup of sugar per 5-6 apples
  • 1/2 cup water per 5-6 apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Peel, slice and dice your apples. I love my apple peeler, corer, slicer for this
  2. Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a bowl.
  3. Add the apples and sugar mix to the crockpot and mix so the apples are well coated with the sugar mixture.
  4. Add the water.
  5. Put the crockpot on high, cover and cook for 4 hours.
  6. Keep mixing the apples. If the applesauce feels to watery, leave the crockpot lid off for a while.
  7. I prefer to mash the apples down as they cook so you get some chunks and some creamy applesauce.
  8. Enjoy with a meal or on its own!
