Real Food For Families

Applesauce in the Crockpot

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?
