07 Nov / Gluten/Dairy/Sugar-Free Homemade Canned Applesauce

Great news! Apples are still in season. And to date, I’ve canned more than 30lbs. of their deliciousness. Super simple recipe (thanks to my lover the crock pot!) and the results are mindblowingly incredible.

Makes a perfect snack (put into smaller single serving jars just for this purpose) or add it as a compliment to your next creation (sooooooo good as a topping on GF pancakes). Whatever you do with it – don’t give it away. Now that I’ve given away some jars, I’m getting requests for more! You will love this applesauce, I promise.

Gluten/Dairy/Sugar-Free Homemade Applesauce

2-3 types of apples (most recent batch was granny and braeburns)
cinnamon (a lot!)
crock pot
apple cider (like Trader Joe’s organic cider)

Core and slice apples – can leave peels on. Place 6 sliced apple (3 of each kind) into crock pot. Add 1 c of water and as much cinnamon as you feel comfortable with (I just pour it on!) for each batch. Add 1/4 c of apple cider to increase the zest. Cook on high in crock pot for 3 hours. Scoop into mason jars, leave out to cool and then place in freezer.

    MMMm….. this sounds so good. My grandkids love it when I make them homemade applesauce. Especially when I leave some apple chunks in it.

    I am following you on Networked blogs and signed up for your emails.
