  • 8-10 apples Granny smith apples will give you a chunkier sauce, macintosh will give you a smoother sauce. I like using a combination of both
  • lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar up to 1/2 cup sugar depending on how tart you want your apple sauce to be
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Peel and slice apples. You can use an apple corer or skip and use a knife to cut as close to the core as you can. Cut thin slices. 
  • Place the apple slices in a large bowl and toss them with a good squeeze of lemon juice to stop them from browning.
  • Toss the apples with sugar, cinnamon. Pour into the slow cooker and add in 1/4 cup of water.
  • Cook the apples for 6-8 hours on low, or 4-6 hours on high. 
  • Open the lid of the slow cooker and stir with a large spoon. Either leave the sauce a little chunky or use a potato masher, or emersion blender, to make a smoother sauce.
