Today was a slow cooker kind of day! David loves applesauce so I wanted to try making my own — it was so easy! Peeling took the longest, but I developed a nice system.
First cut in half horizontally.
Second cut off the top and bottom of the apple.
Last cut out the core and then slice!
I liked this system, but am definitely open to hearing about an easier way!
Crock Pot Applesauce
Slightly Adapted from Skinnytaste
8 apples, peeled and cored
1/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp lemon juice
Dash of nutmeg
Peel, core, and slice apples.
Add all ingredients to crock pot.
Set crock pot to low and cook for 4-6 hours.
Stir every hour or so.
This made the house smell warm and cinnamon-y. Tasted great too! I asked David for his official review and he said: “mm-mm good” while rubbing his stomach. It was like something out of a commercial – very cheesy applesauce commercial. 🙂
Going, going, gone!
What are some other great crockpot recipes I should try?
