Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Sauce

It’s that time of year when I go way overboard getting apples every week. They just look too good at my farmer’s market and the local orchards. I’m surrounded, people! One of the easiest and yummiest ways I could think of to use them up was to whip up a batch of incredible slow cooker cinnamon apple sauce!

*sigh* peeling apples is not my idea of fun. Alas, it was necessary for this slow cooker cinnamon apple sauce!
*sigh* peeling apples is not my idea of fun. Alas, it was necessary for this slow cooker cinnamon apple sauce! I just gave the peeled apples a rough chop since they were going to completely break down while cooking.

The apples and some water went into my beloved slow cooker on low for 4 hours.

When the four hours were up, the flavor went in. I used brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and apple cider vinegar. The slow cooker cinnamon apple sauce was looking good already!

I let the whole mixture cook on low for another 2 hours. It became the perfect thick, glorious and flavorful apple sauce! It could not have been easier. I let it cool before sealing it up and refrigerating it. Then it was ready to use in countless ways. This slow cooker cinnamon apple sauce was perfect as a snack, on pork chops, in baked goods, you name it! Hope you all love it. xoxo

  1. I have a GREAT chocolate lava cake recipe I’ve been dying to try! Also a Thanksgiving dinner made with stuffing, turkey and cranberries made in the slow cooker!

  2. Yum!! Obsessed with cinnamon applesauce. My ideal fall weather/game day slow cooker mean would be…slow cooked cider brats with an apple & onion relish. All things fall!

  3. Potato soup! Apple cider! Egg nog! Chicken soup! Chili! Your applesauce recipe!! Yum yum! Been over the heat for months and am loving the rain and red leaves falling from the trees! Time to cook!
