Peel, core and chop apples until your crockpot is full. Fewer apples is fine.
Cover and cook on low, until the apples are soft. This usually takes 4-6 hours.
Use a potato masher or immersion blender to turn your apples into sauce.
If your sauce is too liquidy (likely), continue cooking it with the lid off, until it reaches a consistency you like.
Add sugar and spices, or enjoy your applesauce as is.
Crockpot applesauce isn’t cooked to a hot enough temperature to meet Ball’s canning recommendations. Store it in the refrigerator, or freeze it.
