Homemade Applesauce is good. Homemade Crockpot Applesauce is even better. Period. And my family loves it… AND you can make your own! I am still convinced that someday I will have my own personal orchard to keep up with apple demand in my home. We love anything with apple in it- oatmeal, bread, pancakes, crisp, pie, sauce- ANYTHING with apple in it is welcome in this home and treated with respect! This crockpot applesauce can be varied any way you like it- add cinnamon, red hot candies, raisons, etc… the possibilities arre endless.
So, applesauce that practically makes itself is a major winner in our home, it is soooooo easy that it is fast becoming one of my favorite things to do in my crockpot.
All you need is:
about 10-12 apples, peeled, cored & chopped
a little water
Put your chopped apples into the crockpot, add brown sugar and cinnamon in quantities that your family will like- I added about 1/2 – 3/4 cup brown sugar & 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and about a 1/4 cup water.
Cook on low about 4-6 hours.
When it’s done, just mash it up to the consistency your family likes… we like it a little chunky. 🙂
Applesauce is great served hot or cold, can be added to smoothies, baked goods, parfaits, granola and yogurt… and it is a quick go-to snack for the kiddos who need just a little something before dinner is ready! Enjoy- I’m going to make more right now!
