Slow Cooker Autumn Applesauce

Here is Julie's Crock of the Week from the week of October 10, 2011:

Slow Cooker Autumn Applesauce

14 medium apples, peeled, cored & cut into chunks (I used Jonamac apples)

1/3 cup apple cider

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Place the apples in the crock pot. Sprinkle brown sugar and spices on top, and stir to get the spices on all the apples. Pour cider in. Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Makes about 6 cups.

I am not a fan of really chunky applesauce. I take a whisk to the mixture when it is done to make it smoother. But it still has a pretty substantial consistency to it. Whatever you prefer!


  1. Julie,tried the applesauce and it has a great flavor and is so simple.Keep the recipes coming as I also like soups during the winter months and the crockpot is great with my schedule as a farmwife.Thanks much!Love your show,you help to brighten my day!!

  2. Julie! My boyfriend heard your hashbrown potato soup recipe on the radio - we tried it that night and it was sooooo good! We usually aren't left over people, but the soup is as good warmed up again as it was the first night! We added ham to it and it was delicous! I can't wait to see the other recipes you have up your sleeve!
    -One happy couple

  3. Thanks for the nice comments, ladies!

    Yes, that potato soup tastes great as a leftover! It also freezes well, I usually freeze half of it, and enjoy it a few weeks later. Just throw it back in the crockpot to thaw for a few hours.
