Spiced Crockpot Apple Sauce

When I was a little girl, my grandmother always made homemade apple sauce every fall. She made it the old fashioned way in a big stock pot on the stove.

She would cook the apples down with a splash of water, and they would slow cook on the stove all afternoon. She would then smush
them through a sieve, and can them. We would enjoy it all winter long.

When I got older, I would help dice up the apples, and pour the sauce into the jars for her.


As I am typing this I can still smell her house and the warm apple sauce!

So, after going to the apple orchard this year, the first thing I wanted to make was my version of a homemade apple sauce.

In our house, we love our fall foods with a lot of fall spices! Here is my take on grandmas homemade apple sauce. Enjoy, let me know what you think, and please share pics of your applesauce!
