Crock Pot Applesauce


The huge bag of apples I purchased from Milburn Orchards actually contained 16 apples. What in the world does one do with 16 apples?

If you're me, you waste 4 of them in an attempt to make apple dumplings going off a verbal recipe and not looking one up for reference. Once that fails, you decide to use 5 of them for applesauce.

    • 5 apples peeled
    • 1 tsp. lemon juice
    • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    • 1 tbs. brown sugar
    • 1/3 cup water

1. Peel, core and cut the apples in half.
2. Combine all ingredients in the crock pot.
3. Cook on low for 6 hours.
4. For chunky applesauce: use a potato masher to mash the apples. For smooth applesauce: pulse in a food processor or blender until it reaches the desired consistency.

Yum! I can't believe I've never had homemade applesauce before. Its incredibly easy to make, especially in the crock pot. I have no interest in buying the prepackaged or jarred kind again. Which means I may want to read up on canning applesauce.
