Real Food For Families

Applesauce in the Crockpot

on September 8, 2013

By the time we get to the end of this month, you are going to be sick of apple recipes, so I apologize in advance. I don’t have much room to store them all so I’ve got to keep using them. On Saturday, we made a pie and today we tried applesauce. Remind me, the next time I take my family apple picking, we don’t HAVE to fill all four bags!

APPLESAUCE (makes about 10 servings)
~8 large apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
~1/2 cup of water
~1 teaspoon of cinnamon
~1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
~1/4 cup brown sugar

Combine all of the ingredients in your slow cooker and stir to mix everything. Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Enjoy warm or cold. Keep in the fridge for up to one week or freeze for up to a year. Of course, you don’t have to use a slow cooker, you can make this in a pot on the stove in about 15 to 20 minutes if you are in a hurry. But who doesn’t love for their kitchen to smell like apples and cinnamon all day long?
