Crockpot Applesauce 4 Ingredients

How To Make Crock Pot Applesauce

  • Peel and core apples. Cut into fourths and place in a crock pot. Add in sugar and cinnamon, stirring to combine. Add in water.
  • Cover with the crock pot lid. Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours, until the apples are very soft. 

Does This Applesauce Have Lemon Juice?

No, Lemon juice protects the apples from oxidation, which means it keeps the slices from turning brown by acting as a barrier between the apple’s flesh and the air. Because we are cooking with the lid at a higher temperature this step is not necessarily needed.  You can toss the apples in 2 tbsp of lemon juice if you prefer though.

Can You Use Crock Pot Applesauce For Canning?

The fruits and veggies are cooked down in a  Crock-Pot. If you want to can the applesauce in this recipe I would suggest you read this article from the National Center for Home Food Preservation.

What Can You Use Applesauce As A Substitute For?

Unsweetened applesauce works well as a substitute for oil in baked products such as muffins, cakes, and breads because it keeps the item moist without adding any additional saturated fats. Furthermore, unsweetened applesauce contains naturally occurring sugars that are already sweet, obviating the need for additional sugar in the dish.
