Crockpot Applesauce – For Those People with Little Extra Time

Wow, it feels like Fall has arrived, doesn't it? Our apple tree is overloaded with yummy apples. The girls and I have been out not just to pick a few apples but bowls of them. With the garden still producing vegetables and now apples coming into the house here's an easy way to make homemade applesauce while not being in the kitchen at all. 
Crockpot Applesauce

  • 6 apples, cored and quartered 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water

Toss the prepared apples, cinnamon, and water into the slow cooker. Let cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low. Stir and mash occasionally. Let cool and blend if you want a super smooth sauce. The peels at this point are almost completely dissolved. Store in the fridge for up two weeks, or two months in the freezer. Makes about 2 cups of applesauce.

Of course if you like to take a little extra time you can peel your apples. I have a large crockpot so I can easily double this recipe. 

Enjoy good food,
