Berries and apples? Yes, please! What’s not to love about this yummy, easy, homemade berry applesauce! My kids gobble up this applesauce. It’s so super easy to make because it is made in the Crock-pot. You don’t even have to eat up the house for this yummy treat.
This is an easy and healthy recipe to store up your fresh summer berries, so you can enjoy them all year long.
Homemade Berry Applesauce

- Pour apple-berry mixture into food processor or blender and pulse a few times until blended thoroughly.

- Place 1 cup of cooled berry applesauce in a freezer safe jar or bag.
- Close and label the container or bag.
- Store in the freezer for up to 3 to 6 months.
- Thaw in refrigerator to use.
- You can peel the apples but it’s not required. Once the apples are blended up the kiddos will not know if they had peels or not.
- For chunky applesauce don’t puree as long.
- We use a variety of apples in our applesauce. For example this batch had Golden Delicious and Gala.
- Alternatively you can use a single kind of apples.
A jar of homemade applesauce lasts us a few days because the kids are so excited to eat it.
If I give the kids apple slices or berries to eat and they do not finish them, I go ahead and chop them up and put them in a bag in the freezer. Then when the bag is full, I use it to make this applesauce. This really helps us save money and stops us from wasting food so much.
What’s your favorite flavor of applesauce?
Have a great day!
