Slow Cooker Must-Have Recipes
Fall has my family craving one of our favorite recipes, homemade applesauce! I always thought that making this was so labor intensive, but really, this is one of the easiest mix of ingredients to ever grace your kitchen, I promise. Basically, you will need only 3 things to make this:
- Crock-Pot – One of the best appliances to have year-round!
- Apples- 6-12 fresh apples (depending on the size) peeled, cored, and roughly chopped.
- Cinnamon- which is optional!
Lastly, add a little bit of water (about a cup). Put all these together, turn your crockpot on low and you are on your way to the best crockpot applesauce!
Easy Homemade Crock Pot Applesauce
I love going to one of our local orchards to pick apples, but when this fun family activity provides more fruit than anyone can possibly eat, plus there tends to be a few dented or bruised selections on the bottom of the bag. These make perfect cooking apples for easy apple butter or sauce. The best part about making applesauce in a crockpot is it’s healthier and makes the house smell amazing!
How to make homemade crockpot applesauce:
- Peel and core 6-10 apples (depending on the size), roughly chop
- Add to crock pot with 1 cup of water.
- Add cinnamon (optional)
Cover with lid and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours. Lift lid and stir with spoon. When fruit is easily stirred and breaks into sauce, it is done. Cool completely before storing in airtight container. Place in fridge. This should keep for about a week.
