Easy Fall Favorite

Homemade applesauce made with fresh picked apples is a simple treat that doesn't require sugar.  This delicious fruit dish has only three ingredients:  apples, cinnamon and nutmeg. Preparation involves just three steps:  peel, cut and spice.  Cooking time is three hours or less.

First, cover part of the counter with plastic wrap.

 I sit at the counter and peel directly into the wrap.

 Slice the apple around the core, discard the core and cut the apples into large chunks.

Place apple chunks in the crock pot.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.


Discard the peel.

 Cook on high for 2 1/2 -3 hours.

I cut up approximately 20 apples (8 pounds) to fill my crock pot.  2 apples makes 1/2 cup of applesauce.

Homemade Applesauce

(Serves 12-1/2 cup servings)

Peel, core and cut apples in large chunks.  Place apple chunks in crock pot.  My crock pot holds 12 cups.
20-24 apples

Season with cinnamon and nutmeg.
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Cook on high for 2 1/2 -3 hours.  Longer cooking times reduces the volume and chunkiness.
