This method is much better than the stove/oven because you don't have to babysit (or even be home). Athough it takes 8 hours, it is well worth it! Wait until you smell the aroma in your home :)


8 apples (cored, peeled, and chopped) I use a variety for a better taste

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons cinnamon


1. Place apples in crock pot on high heat for 3 hours, stirring every hour

2. Whisk apples until it resembles applesauce

3. Add remainder of ingredients, whisking until combined

4. Cook on low heat for 4 more hours, whisking when possible

5. Remove cover from crock pot for final hour to evaprate excess liquid

6. Store in jars or container in refrigerator without cap for 1 hour

7. Cover and keep refrigerated

8. Great on biscuits, toast, bagels and english muffins
