Fragrant Applesauce

Fragrant Applesauce

What is your kids favorite snack?

We have a long list and one in that list is Applesauce.Both of my kids love applesauce.In fact,this particular applesauce went by so fast,it was surprising to me 🙂

I often make applesauce at home.Quite effortless i may add.


This time,i decided to  try my friend Melissa‘s applesauce recipe.I usually make it plain.So it was bit of a change to try her fragrant applesauce recipe 🙂

How to make it?

  • You can peel and core the apple before you set it to cook.If you do this,you will have beautiful mess in your kitchen.Apple ribbons anyone?

  • Or You can leave the peel on like me,because one,I don’t own a apple peeler,two,i am lazy and three,the most important one, i can fully justify that eating extra fiber does not hurt.If you are leaving the peel on,,i would suggest to use organic apples,well washed.
  • You can make applesauce in couple of ways.Over the stove top.Baking in the oven.Like Melissa did.

  • Or my lazy easy way.Letting it cook in slow cooker.

  • Now slicing the apple,you can slice the apple thinly and uniformly.Meticulous..
  • Or you can make apple flowers by using trusty apple slicer.I guarantee you it will not be uniformly sliced.
  • Melissa’s secret ingredient is “Vanilla”!

Point is no matter which way you use,end result is equally DELICIOUS.

How do i use Applesauce?

  • Seems no brainer.You can eat applesauce as it,which is the most popular way to use, in our house anyway.
  • You can also eat with bread and biscuit as a side dish.
  • I have made whole wheat applesauce pancakes.Very yummy.
  • Applesauce makes good  granola and oat drops.
  • I have  used applesauce in baking browniesapplesauce bread etc.
  • This carrot cake’s original recipe asks for applesauce too.
  • Applesauce granita is loved in our house during summer.


So here is my slow cooker version of  Melissa’s  baked applesauce recipe.



  1. 3 Lbs Gala Apple(Use what you like,mix sweet and tart)
  2. 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  3. 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  4. 1 teaspoon apple spice

  6. 4 Tablespoons cold butter cut
  7. Juice and zest of 1 orange
  8. 1/2 tsp Vanilla(optional)


  1. Wash the apples.
  2. Peel apples or leave he skin on.I left the skin on.
  3. Core and slice the apple using knife,apple corer,apple slicer.
  4. In a crockpot,add apple and rest of the ingredient.
  5. Set it out to cook at low for 6 hrs.
  6. Mash it using the potato masher.It will be bit grainy.
  7. If you want smooth texture,run it in a blender.
  8. Enjoy.
  9. Store extra in a freezer safe container or glass jar,once it has cooled down.
