Crockpot Applesauce

For nearly a decade, my birthday has had an “apple festival” theme. Don’t ask why. It is a long sordid story.

In any case, this past weekend we celebrated my birthday with an “apple festival” which meant-we fed my mother, the prairie dogs, the dog and drove an hour away to pick a few apples and spend the night at the Holiday Inn. (Free–courtesy of the Priority Club points). We picked some apples. We bought a bag of windfall apples. Now I need to do something with them.

I told the kids I would make applesauce…crockpot applesauce and I probably will. Crockpot apple butter is more my thing. I wonder if we have enough apples for both. Likely. In any case, the house will smell good!

Of course, I likely won’t peel first and don’t have the exact apples-so it won’t be exactly like either–but you can’t go wrong with homemade applesauce.


  1. Happy Birthday! Thanks so much for linking to my crockpot applesauce recipe. It is a recipe from my husband’s side of the family and it has become a traditional dish to sit on the Thanksgiving table, alongside the cranberry sauce. Trust me, you want to try it.

  2. Ohh apple butter. I wanna make apple butter.

  3. Oh poop….I missed your birthday TW….SORRY! Happy Belated Birthday. I hope you celebrated and had a great day. I love applesause….and this sounds really good.

  4. Awww tis ok…besides, I am waiting on that BABY for a birthday present.
