No, but maybe you can play with this one (ie., applesauce = apple pulp
??).  I got it out of a crockpot book(_Extra-Special Crockery Pot
Recipes, by Lou Pappas).  Hope it works out.

Cider Apple Butter

5 lbs cooking apples
1-1/2 cups apple cider
brown sugar (about 3 cups)
juice and grated peel of 1 each: lemon and orange
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Core and quater apples, but do not peel.  Place in crock pot with apple
cider.  Cook on high(300!) until very soft, about 1-1/2 hrs.  Press
cooked apples through food mill or sieve.  Measure.  (Should be about 6
cups.)  For every 1 cup fruit pulp, allow 1/2 cup brown sugar.  Return to
crock pot.  Stir in lemon and orange peel and juice, cinnamon, allspice,
cloves, and nutmeg.  Cover.  Cook on high(300!) until dark and thick,
about 4 hours.  Immediately pour into hot, sterilized glasses and seal. 
Makes about 8 cups.
