Fall Snack: Pumpkin Apple Sauce Crockpot Recipe

Well, this happened on accident but I always welcome delicious mishaps in the kitchen.  It was supposed to be Pumpkin Apple Butter but too much apple juice was added so it turned into pumpkin flavored apple sauce. I loved how easy it was to make our no peel apple sauce crockpot recipe and this was just as easy.

It’s been the perfect fall snack for my kiddos and I don’t mind some myself.

Pumpkin Apple Sauce Crockpot Recipe

  • 3 cups of pumpkin chunks from a whole pumpkin or 1.5 cups of pumpkin puree
  • 7 apples cored
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 cinnamon sticks  (plus 2 tsp ground cinnamon)
  • 1/3 cp of brown sugar (you may need more)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • optional apple juice

1. Place all of the above in the crockpot and cook for 4 hours.

2. Take your cooked mixture and place in a blender except for the cinnamon sticks. You may need to add apple juice to keep the blender from sticking. Add 1/4 cp at a time.

If you live in Ecuador or South America with and only have access to zapallo and babaco here’s the recipe for you. You can make this recipe for a lot cheaper using a whole babaco instead of apples.

Pumpkin Apple Sauce using Babaco and Zapallo

  • 1 bag of zapallo chunks (bags are sold in produce section)
  • 1 large babaco peeled & gutted (here’s a picture with instructions on peeling and gutting.)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks  (plus 2 tsp ground cinnamon)
  • 1/3 cp of brown sugar (you may need more)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ginger

1. Place all of the above ingredients in the crockpot and cook for 4 hours.

2. Place all of the above ingredients minus the cinnamon sticks in a blender and enjoy.  You may need to add 1/4 cup of apple juice at a time if your blender is getting stuck.

Taste and see if you need to add more sugar. If it’s to thick then add more apple juice.
