Easy Crock Pot Pear or Apple Sauce

Making your own apple or pear sauce is very easy to do! In fact, it’s so incredibly easy that I tend to prefer this method for taste and ease compared to buying the already prepared stuff which in my opinion is a little overpriced. I love that preparing your own pear and apple sauce in a slow cooker/ crockpot makes your house smell wonderful as well! I hope you enjoy my picture how to guide in this post.

 Step 1. Decide whether you want to make apple or pear sauce and do have a good number of
fruit selected as I find it more satisfactory to make larger batches at a time.

Step 2. Peel and wash your fruit.

Step 3.  Cut your fruit, making sure to remove all traces of core. I found using a fruit slicer
makes this step fly by! I for one use my extremely affordable fruit slicer from IKEA.

Step 4. Place your sliced fruit into a crock pot.

Step 5.  Generously sprinkle cinnamon and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Step 6.  When fruit is tender, use a food processor or potato masher to
make your fruit into the consistency of sauce. Make to refrigerate after it’s done.
( I would recommend eating your sauce within two weeks of being made)

    I bet this smells amazing! Have you tried freezing it? Does that mess up the texture?

    You know, I am not sure about the freezing but hoping to delve more into making huge batches and freezing since we did splurge on a deep freeze this Summer! I’ll post more once I find out! 🙂

    I make a batch and freeze some of mine. I use tupperware or other freezer containers. The applesauce freezes quite well. I’ve done it for years. Just make sure you save head space of an 1″ for swelling a bit when it freezes. I usually let mine cool a bit before I freeze it. Homemade applesauce is so delicious. Megan and Justin used to help me make it. When I don’t have it I use the Trader Joe’s brand…which I like the best of all, behind that it Mott’s applesauce. I know Melody likes homemade applesauce cuz she ate mine and liked it! Take care!
