Did you know that you can reduce your allergic reaction to local pollens by consuming local raw honey?  Find a local bee keeper in your area and ask about getting raw honey from them.  You want honey from your area because it will be made from the plants in your area.  By consuming small amounts of local honey, you increase your tolerance of the local pollens and reducing your allergic reaction.

It’s getting to that time of year!  Let’s make some great applesauce.  It makes a delicious snack or side for virtually any meal.

Easy Crockpot Apple Sauce

Easy Crockpot Applesauce

Easy Crockpot Applesauce


  • 10-12 medium to large crisp apples
  • 1 1/4 cups 100% pure unfiltered apple juice
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Peel and core apples.  Cut into one-inch chunks and place in crockpot.
  2. In a 2-cup glass measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the apple juice, water, maple syrup, lemon juice and cinnamon.  Pour over the apple chunks.
  3. Cover crockpot and cook on low for about 4 hours, until the apples are very soft and easily fall apart when mashed with a fork.
  4. Mash apples to desired consistency using a potato masher, an emersion blender (motor boat), or pulse puree in batches in a blender or food processor.  If using a blender or food processor, transfer the puree in batches to a large bowl.
  5. If the applesauce is too thick, add a few tablespoons of filtered water and stir well.  Continue adding a few tablespoons at a time until you reach the desired thickness.
  6. The applesauce will become sweeter as it cools.  This recipe has just a light flavor of cinnamon.  Feel free to season it with cinnamon to your taste.
  7. Place applesauce in airtight containers and store in the refrigerator.

Recommended apples:  Fuji, Jonathan, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Pink Lady or McIntosh.  A mix of a few different types works great!  If you are lucky enough to have an apple tree (or your neighbor), free apples make them taste that much better!

Makes approximately 6 cups of applesauce.
