Containing no refined or added sugars, this crockpot recipe is about as “whole foods” as it gets.  Plus it's about as “hands off” and easy as it gets too.  


  • 10 large apples, peeled, cored, and diced into 1" pieces
  • ½-¾ cup water


  • Put the apples and ½ cup of water into your crock pot, then cook on high for 3-4 hours, until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • While the applesauce cooks, check on it at least once an hour to give it a good stir. If it begins to look dry, add an extra ¼ cup of water.
  • Once finished and cooled, spoon the sauce into jars or let it cool and store in any container.

Ready in about 3-4 hours
