Who would have thought that making applesauce was soooo easy? I have had numerous people tell me that after making this recipe, they vow never to buy store-bought again! I can’t say that will happen for sure..but I can say, this will probably be added to your “must make” Fall recipes each year! What child wouldn’t want to come home from a long day at school to the smell of homemade applesauce?
|Fresh apples from the orchard – I used Gala|
|Core and slice|
|Chop into small chunks|
|My little one did an apple project today…so this was a special treat for her..and me :)|
|Make sure to discard peels in the trash, not disposal….peelings are the worst for the disposal! (I have learned the hard way)|
|place your peeled and cut apples in the crock pot with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 sugar|
|I like to sprinkle of cinnamon on top|
|Turn on high for 4 hours- this is what it will look like. Leaving it like this is amazing..nice and chunky!|
|If you like it more “applesaucey” use a hand held mixer or an emersion blender right in the crock pot|
|This is what it will look like|
|We love warm applesauce right out of the crockpot- you may cool it as well. Both are delicious|
My favorite apples for applesauce: Gala, Fuji, and Jonagold.
- 10 Apples peeled and sliced
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup sugar (optional)
- sprinkle of cinnamon
- Put all in Crockpot for 4 hours on High.
- May use an emersion blender/ handheld mixer to make smooth..or you can leave chunky.
