Homemade Applesauce

My homemade applesauce is easy to make yet very nutritios . It literall is made with two ingredients. Farm picked apples and raw apple cider. That's it friends.
Servings 4 Cups


  • Crockpot
  • Food MIll
  • Apple Corer


  • 12 Medium Apples
  • 1 cup Raw Apple Cider
  • 1 tsp Cinnimman (optional)


  • Core and wedge your apples. Toss them in a bowl of lemon juice water, to avoid browning.
  • Add the apples to your crockpot and then pour in the cider.
  • Set your crockpot to low setting and cook for 2-3 hours.
  • Once they are soft and mushy, turn the crockpot off and let cool for approx. 10 minutes.
  • If you've left the peels on, remove them.
  • At this point, you can fill your jars with the applesauce and can it or place it in the fridge.
  • If you want it a smoother texter, you'll need to puree it.


Applesauce will keep fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week. It can be frozen for up to 6 months. See my notes above on freezing. If you're canning, make sure you follow the National Center for Home Food Preservation guidelines. National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Can (uga.edu)
