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
rind from the lemon/lime

How to Make Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Applesauce


  • 1Wash and peel the skin off of all the apples.
  • 2Use an apple corer or slice apples and remove core by hand, then chop apples up into bite size pieces.
  • 3Add all of the chopped apples to the crockpot (should fill to the top)
  • 4Pour 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.
  • 5Cook 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)
  • 6Apples 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.
