Slow Cooker Applesauce

October 24, 2011

Put away those fall smelling candles, potpourri, and plug ins. This recipe fills your home with the smells of fall naturally and tastes delicious after it’s done! This weekend we spent some time picking apples off of our tree. With all of those apples, I knew I would make some cinnamon applesauce.

As it cooked throughout the day, my children would come in and out from the backyard and mention how good it smelled in our house. It was an easy recipe, but hard to wait to enjoy it!

We enjoyed our applesauce as an after dinner dessert. The kids added a dollop of cream with theirs and the warm applesauce was just perfect for a cool fall night!

For this recipe you will need: 8 apples peeled, cored and sliced. Place them in the crockpot

Add juice from one lemon, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar. (Add 3-4 tablespoons if you like a sweeter applesauce).

Stir it all up and cook on low for 4-6 hours. (This is where the waiting gets really hard!!) The apples will be fork tender when done.

Place the apples in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. For chunky applesauce, blend half the apples in the food processor or blender and mash the other half of the apples with a masher. Mix the two together until well incorporated.

 Place the applesauce in a jar or bowl to serve. For a dessert, place a dollop of whipped cream on top.

The applesauce will stay in a jar in the refrigerator for several days.

Serves 8

8 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

Juice from one lemon

1/2 cup water

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

In a slow cooker, place all ingredients and mix until blended. Cook on low for approximately 4-6 hours, or until apples become fork tender. Remove apples from the slow cooker and place in a blender or food processor. Blend apples until smooth. For chunky applesauce, blend half of the apples in a food processor or blender and mash the other half. Mix the apples together and serve.

Serve applesauce warm with a dollop of whipped cream for an easy dessert, or refrigerate in a container for several days.
