This was a no-brainer. Really worked out fabulously with almost no effort at all. Ten times better than anything bought in the store, too. My kids will tolerate the store bought organic, but they LOVED this. It's just like eating the inside of an apple pie. I upped the quantity of the pumpkin pie spice to a full tsp. and I also added the spice and the brown sugar to the crockpot during the cooking process. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing. EDITED 06/17/08: I made this today with half pear and half apples. This is a great way to use your excess crops or fruit that just didn't get eaten fast enough. My kids just can't get enough of this sauce!

I REALLY wanted to like this and I made it exactly the way it was written; but, sadly there was just waaaaaaaay too much sugar in it and it was just a little too watery. I really wish I had read some of the reviews before making this. I do plan to make this again; however, I will reduce the water slightly and reduce the sugare to 1/4 cup.

A REAL KEEPER. Last night, I added water to my Crockpot, cut up my apples (a combination of Granny Smith's and Gala's), used Apple Pie Spice (a combination of Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Allspice)(a generous "sprinkling"), tossed in the Brown Sugar (what I would call a "handful"), added a handful of raisins and "short sprinkle" (perhaps 8-10) of "Hot Dots", and turned the appliance on (LOW). This morning, I made our Oatmeal (a regular occurrence in our household -- except that no one really likes it; sometimes it's Cream of Wheat -- which is better received, but not loved) and topped each bowl with a GENEROUS/HEFTY spoonful of this Applesauce (which had been cooking for no less than 10 hours). Not only did no one (1 DH and 3 adult "children") complain, but my DH and BOTH of my sons (aged 20+) actually refilled their Oatmeal bowls so that they could have more of the "topping". Better than this it rarely gets.

This smells soooooo good while cooking! My crock pot is a "beast" and cooks super hot and fast, so this was done on low in 4 hours. I used the "pumpkin pie spice II" recipe on this site and am very happy with the results. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe!

Really good...the brown sugar is waaay better than a whole ton of white sugar...little nutmeg little allspice!! ummmmmm

This recipe was very good. I used gala and golden delicious apples, therefore I only added 1/4 cup of brown sugar and the pumpkin pie spice II that another reviwer suggested. I substituted allspice for the cloves since I don't like the bitterness of cloves. I used 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons of the spioce mixture in the applesauce and it turned out quite well. I will definitely make this again.

Very good, I also added just a pinch of nutmeg. Thank you so much for the post.
