Homemade Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce

Nothing screams Fall-time like the smell of apples and cinnamon. Fall is definitely my favorite time of year, and our Homemade Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce is one of our family’s favorites on a cool afternoon! Smells trigger so many memories, and one hope I have is that the smell of our crockpot applesauce will trigger memories of Sunday afternoons together as a family for our boys as they grow older. We love to eat this applesauce by itself, for breakfast mixed into our oatmeal, or as a dessert with a little ice cream! 


  • 7-8 Medium Apples (use a mix of different types of apples for the best flavor)
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick/ 1 1/2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of Lemon Juice
  • 1 Large Strip of Lemon Peel
  • 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of Water


1. Begin by coring, slicing, and chopping the apples into small chunks.

2. Combine all the ingredients into the crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours. I always prefer to cook it on low; letting it cook all day.

3. Finally, mash or puree the applesauce to reach your desired consistency.


  1. I never thought of doing applesauce in the crockpot. That wonderful smell would be in the house all day – I can’t wait to make it!

  2. Oh my! That looks so easy and delicious. I am going to have to make a run to the apple orchard soon so I can try this. :)

  3. Oh my word! This looks amazing! Thanks for linking up to Keep Calm and Link Up this week! I pinned this! :)
