Crock Pot Applesauce…
Very easy recipe that you can change up to taste…
Crock Pot Apple Sauce
3 pound bag of apples, peeled cored and sliced. A bag is probably 9-12 apples depending on their size. I used Macintosh, but anything will work, even a mixture of apples.
1/2 cup white sugar
sprinkle of brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup apple juice or cider (water if you don't have the juice)
Place apple slices in crock pot. Add sugar, cinnamon and apple juice. Mix together.
Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8. Stir once or twice, if you're home.
The apple sauce will be chunky.
You can put it through a food processor if you want very smooth apple sauce, but I used a hand held potato masher to make it semi chunky.
Be careful with hot foods in a food processor…don't fill it up too much and pulse at first. Hot foods can splash.
Not only is this delicious, but your house will smell so good all day!!
We ate this warm and is perfect for cold winter days, but the little bit we had left was stored in the refrigerator and was yummy cold too.
Great warm over vanilla ice cream. It's like apple pie a la mode, without the work of making the pie!!
