My husband snagged three, $.99 bags of apples from the reduced-price rack this week, so I decided to make some applesauce. Here’s my easy-peasy crockpot recipe:
- Apple sauce
- Optional: cinnamon, sugar or nutmeg
Peel, core and chop enough apples to fill your crockpot.
Then, put the lid on, and cook on low until the apples are soft. It should take 4-6 hours.
Mash the apples with a potato masher or fork for chunky applesauce, or blend them for smooth sauce.
If your sauce is more liquidy than you’d like it to be (and it probably will be), cook it with the lid off, until you reach your desired consistency.
Add cinnamon, sugar or nutmeg to your applesauce for flavor, or leave it plain (my preference).
Then, enjoy your applesauce while it’s still warm, or divide it up and freeze it for later.
