  • 3 pounds of apples- peeled cored and cut into small cubes – 6-8 apples depending on their size
  • ½ cup of water
  • juice of a ½ lemon
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of ground nutmeg freshly squeezed


  • Layer sliced apples in the bowl of a slow cooker.
  • Pour in the water and lemon juice.
  • Add in the cinnamon sticks, salt, and ground nutmeg. Give it a gentlestir.
  • Cook in high heat setting up to 3-4 hours. Depending on your slow cooker the timing may change. However, I recommend keeping a close eye after the 3-hour mark. I also recommend giving it a stir a few times during the cooking process.
  • Transfer the apples into a high power blender and puree until smooth. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer, but it might take longer for it to be completely pureed.
  • Store in glass Mason jars. They will keep fresh up to 5 days in the fridge. If you prefer to freeze your applesauce, store in airtight plastic containers and freeze up to 3 months.
