I’ve been having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. Adam (p.e. teacher) went back to work last Monday. He was home for two months. That’s a long time to get used to having extra hands around the house, extra eyes on the kids and extra help all day, every day.

I’ve had less time playing in the kitchen, less time taking pictures and less time working on this lovely little blog. Basically, it’s been tough trying to figure out how to balance it all. I’m sure I’ll get a nice little routine down one of these days…

Anyways, now that it’s September, it’s time for some apples. I love apples, baking with apples, cooking with apples, apples, apples, apples.

And if you read my homemade peach ice cream post, you know I’m a summer girl BUT apples are not a ‘fall’ food for me. They’re a ‘September’ food. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve got some weird/quirky little food rules. While I won’t be welcoming the start of fall early but I will be enjoying apples in September.

Apples in September, pumpkin in October. If that doesn’t make any sense to you, that’s ok because first of all, they’re my rules and second of all, it’s 10:00 at night and I’m drafting my fantasy football team as I write this.

This Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce? It’s sooo good. Kelsey loves it. I love it. We all love it. And Kelsey helps me make it too. Her job is dumping everything into the slow cooker for me. I love recipes like this when I can make something with my two-year-old and it’s not stressful.

I also prefer homemade applesauce to store-bought. It tastes so much better and it’s really easy. The only work is peeling and cutting the apples but it’s completely worth it! If you’ve never made your own applesauce before, do it! You won’t go back. Trust me on that one. So go ahead, try it and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce

Yield: serves 8-10
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 10 minutes

This is a super easy recipe for cinnamon applesauce made right in your slow cooker. Warm cinnamon applesauce is so comforting and makes the perfect year round snack or side dish for pork. Enjoy it warm or cold.

Ingredients

  • 9 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1 C water
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a slow-cooker and cook on low for 6 hours.
  2. After 6 hours, mash apples to desired thickness. I use a potato masher because I like my applesauce with some chunks of apple in it.
  3. Serve warm or cold.

Made this recipe for Thanksgiving this year. The recipe said to keep in crock pot for six hours. It only took 1 1/2 hours on High. The consistency was great and the flavor fabulous.

This looks amazing! However, I am trying to transition to a diet free of processed sugars. Is there a healthy alternative to the brown sugar or can I just leave it out? I am a disaster in the kitchen when left on my own! Thanks!

Hi Deby, If you use really sweet apples instead of Granny Smith, you can omit the sugar entirely or dramatically reduce the amount.

You could certainly try it if your slow cooker is big enough.
