More About This Recipe

  • It’s that time of the year again where APPLES ARE EVERYWHERE. And sometimes you’re tempted to buy a 5 lb. bag because you think you’ll make a bunch of apple pies and then you buy it and you’re like, NOPE. The next best thing to do with all those apples is make a batch of homemade applesauce. It’s so easy with a slow cooker. Apples get peeled, cut up, thrown into the slow cooker with some spice and apple juice and in a few hours you’ve got applesauce. Bing bang boom. INGREDIENTS! And by ingredients I mean apples, apple juice or cider, and cinnamon or some sassy pumpkin pie spice. Toss apple pieces into a slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients. Set to high, wait three hours and you’ve got applesauce. Depending on how ripe the apples are you might have to use a potato masher or a food processor to make it really smooth. I prefer a chunky sauce. Dish it up, sprinkle with cinnamon and grab a spoon!
