Notes:

  • Looking for an unsweetened applesauce? Just omit the sweetener all together!
  • This applesauce tastes amazing served right from the crockpot, chilled, or at room temperature.
  • Store leftovers applesauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. This applesauce freezes great. Pour cooked, cooled homemade applesauce in freezer bags. Store bags of applesauce in the freezer for up to 3 months.
