Homemade Crabapple Sauce with 3 ingredients

Insanely sweet and tart crabapple sauce is such a fun treat! Dare I say it can be better than regular applesauce? Only raw honey as sweetener here!

Servings 7 servings


  • 6 cups diced and cored crab apples
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 3 tablespoon raw honey


  • Add apples and water to a heavy bottom medium-sized saucepan ( I use Corning Ware). Add honey on top, stir in, and heat on medium-low for about 30 minutes. Turn off heat and use a potato masher to mash apples to a texture you like. Transfer to a container with a lid to chill in the fridge where it will solidify more.  Enjoy once cooled!
