  1. Peel and slice enough apples to fill your slow cooker. Sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice on the apples and cook them for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Let it cool off a bit and blend smooth with an immersion blender. My 6 quart crock pot made 8 cups of applesauce.

I made slow cooker applesauce last month and ABSOLUTELY loved it!  So I knew that was where most of these apples would end up.  The rest are being dried, eaten in lunches, and maybe I’ll make some apple cake.

I said this was easy and I do mean EASY.  I peeled and sliced enough apples to fill my 6 quart slow cooker to almost over flowing.

Now for the twist….. I’ve been looking for more ways to use my homemade pumpkin pie spice mix so I added somewhere between 1 and 2 tablespoons to the crock pot and turned it on high for 4 hours (on low for 8 to 9 hours works too).  Oh how I wish you could have smelled the aroma coming from my crock pot! After 4 hours I stirred up the apples and let them cool for a bit.  If you like your applesauce a little lumpy you can leave it as is or you can blend it for a smooth consistency.  It took about 30 seconds with an immersion blender.  That’s it….I ended up with about 8 cups of  wonderful, fall flavored applesauce, no sugar needed!

  1. I’ve made apple butter in the crockpot using cinnamon but I can see this would kick it up. Thank you for sharing the link to your spice recipe. Last week I made pumpkin butter in the crockpot and it’s easy, too. My husband thinks I need to make more since I gave all but one jar away.

    1. Pumpkin butter sounds soooo yummy. I LOVE apple butter so I bet I would adore pumpkin butter. I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for stopping by Pamela!

  2. I LOVE reading all of your posts! Why I didn’t think of the slow cooker to use up my not-so-perfect apples is beyond me. Anyway, did you add any water at all? I’ve never done applesauce anywhere but the stove top so I wasn’t sure. Thanks!! 🙂

  3. YUMMM! I made crockpot applesauce just recently, but never thought to add the pps. NICE! Thanks so much for sharing…and linking back to the party…at Weekend Potluck. Please come back again soon.

  4. I’ve made applesauce before but not in the crockpot. I love how easy that sounds – no worries about scorching and you don’t have to babysit it. The addition of the pumpkin pie spice sounds AWESOME! Thank you for sharing this at the HomeAcre Harvest Hop; I hope you’ll join us again this Thursday.
