  • 6 medium Apples {I love Gala apples!}
  • ½ cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon {I love cinnamon so I use 1 tbsp.}
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar {this can be adjusted based upon the sweetness of the apples you use}
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Peel and core apples.
  • Chop up into chunky pieces.
  • Place apples in crockpot.
  • In separate bowl, combine water, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla.
  • Pour mixture over apples in crockpot, and stir around, so apples are evenly coated.
  • Cover crockpot, and cook on LOW for 4 hours, or until soft.
  • Once apples are soft, remove from crockpot and mash with a hand masher.
  • This will make a chunky {and oh-so-yummy} style applesauce.
  • For creamier applesauce, mix with a hand mixer. Enjoy!!
