  • 3 medium
    gala apples
  • 3 medium
    fuji apples
  • 3 large
    granny smith apples
  • 1 tsp
    ground cinnamon
  • 5 tsp
    brown sugar, lightly packed (either dark or light will work)
  • 1 tsp
    fresh lemon/lime juice
  • 1
    rind from the lemon/lime

How to Make Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Applesauce


  1. Wash and peel the skin off of all the apples.
  2. Use an apple corer or slice apples and remove core by hand, then chop apples up into bite size pieces.
  3. Add all of the chopped apples to the crockpot (should fill to the top)
  4. Pour the fresh juice over the apples then sprinkle the cinnamon and the brown sugar over the apples. Give a little stir with a spoon. Place lemon rind on top of the apples and cover with lid.
  5. Cook apples on high heat for approximately six hours, stirring at least once every hour.
    (Note: make sure lemon rind stays on the top so it doesn't burn. It will give off a very bitter taste)
  6. Apples will begin to bread down on their own after about 4 hours. Depending on the consistency that you like, use hand masher for a chunkier texture, a hand blender for a smoother texture.
