Kari’s Absolute Applesause

I picked tons of homegrown apples and had so many leftovers, so decided to try this concoction.
Hope you enjoy.

Great alternative to jelly, We generally can these and enjoy all year long. Also makes great gifts!


  • 6-8 Pounds Apples
  • 2-4 Cup Sugar
  • 4 1-2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 2-3 Tablespoon Ground Cloves


  1. Step One

    Peel, and core apples, slice in 1/4 in thick pieces. Enough to fill 6 qt crock until heaping.

  2. Step Two

    place sliced apples into a separate bowl and cover with sugar and spices. Gently mix together then place in crock pressing apples firmly to fit more. (lid will not fit securely at first but will as the apples heat up and settle.)

  3. Step Three

    Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours uncover cook on high stirring occasionally with whisk or potato masher until cooks down to the consistency you prefer. This step can be done anytime after hr 3.

  4. Step Four

    The whole process can be done on high if you're home, just uncover sooner and stir more frequently, about every 45-60 min. This cuts over-all time to about 8 hrs.
