  1. Tried this and it was amazing, especially warm right out of the crock pot! Do you by any chance have a recipe for making natural, sugar free apple butter?

    1. Angelle, Yes, just be sure to leave some space at the top of the jar as it will expand when frozen.

  2. I made my own version and if you use golden delicious its naturally sweeter. I also cut my apple very chunky and add a little brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juicy. It tastes like apple pie when you take it out.

  3. I only have Granny Smith and McIntosh. Will I get good results if I use these or should i go to the store and get the ones suggested in the recipe?

  4. This is the only applesauce I ever use. It tastes much better than anything you can buy, and it's so simple to make. I usually add even more apples (fills crock pot to the top). I use a potato masher to get the consistency we like, which is a little chunky. And it keeps for a long time. Thanks for this recipe.

    1. Vanessa, I peeled them but it’s not necessary…they just blend in with the applesauce. I’ve actually done it both ways. 🙂

  5. 5 smart points per serving? There is no sugar in the recipe, how do you arrive at 5 pts., I calculated 0 points per serving.

    1. Debbie, I recalculated and still get 5 Smart Points. It’s the naturally occuring sugar that puts the points at 5.

  6. I thought that apple sauce was 0points since its fruit? I have not been counting the unsweetened apple sauce cups I have been eating.

    1. Hi Danielle. Unfortunately this recipe is not 0 points. In this recipe apples are not a zero point ingredient. In recipes like applesauce and smoothies you typically eat more than what you would when just eating a raw apple.
