Lots and lots of applesauce

So I promised I would share my plans for those apples I picked right?

It’s nothing profound, so don’t get too excited but I think homemade applesauce is something pretty special.

When I was younger, it would always be such a treat to smell the sweet smell of cinnamon and apples cooking together in the crock pot. I also thought that it was something that took a lot of effort to make.

Wrong.

Unless you count peeling apples but that isn’t too bad. Especially if you nibble at the peels. (Yes, I’m weird, we’ve established that. 🙂 )

When I got back from apple-picking on Saturday, I texted my mom for her recipe because what’s the point if I’m not going to make the applesauce that I remember. But in reality, it’s probably the same as any other slow cooker applesauce recipe out there. We’ll just pretend it’s different.

And Sunday morning, I enjoyed this delicious treat that was both sweet and warm and delicious.

Now go buy some apples and make this.

Homemade Slow Cooker Applesauce

8 apples, peeled, cored and chopped (about 6 cups)

1 t cinnamon

1/2 cup water

1/2 to 1 cup of sugar depending on how sweet your apples are. (Also you can do a mix of white and brown sugar for some flavor depth)

Combine in crock pot. Cook for 3-4 hrs on high or 8-10 on low.

When done, mash some of the apples with a potato masher or spoon but be sure to leave some chunks of apples.

Enjoy!
