Along with our apples unit in Kindergarten, we liked to make applesauce! It’s easy to do, you just need apples, sugar, cinnamon and a crock pot.
So here is our simple recipe:
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Peel, core and cut up the apples. Put in the crock pot and add sugar and water. Cook until apples are soft, them mash them with a potato masher. Add cinnamon and stir and your applesauce is ready. Try adding a dollop of whipped cream on top to make a delicious treat!
We sang this little song about making applesauce while we were working.

We love making applesauce, applesauce, applesauce.
We love making applesauce, it’s very good to eat!
We will peel the apples now, apples now, apples now.
We will peel the apples now and put them in the pot!
Add some spice and cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon.
Add some spice and cinnamon to make it taste so good!
A little sugar it will take, it will take, it will take.
A little sugar it will take to make it nice and sweet!
Then we’ll let it cook all day, cook all day, cook all day.
Then we’ll let it cook all day before we eat it up!
