Slow Cooker Applesauce

Last weekend, as I was shopping at our local farmer's market 
and seeing the bushels and bushels of apples, 
it donned on me that I have never made applesauce before! 

I also have seen on Pinterest how 
you can make applesauce in a slow cooker! 

Good thing, because I don't think I have the patience to do it the hard way. 

This recipe ended up being a huge hit! 
In fact Matt had it completely gone before I even got to take a picture of it!! 

Super easy, very yummy! Oh and by the way, 
it makes your house smell WONDERFUL while it's cooking!

Slow Cooker Apple Sauce

Shopping List:

17 Medium Apples
(You can chose any kind you like. 
I used Golden Delicious. 
You can even mix and match if you want!)

Lemon Juice

4 Tbsp Brown Sugar



1. Peel, core, and dice apples. Add to slow cooker.
2. As I was adding the apples to the slow cooker, spritz with lemon juice to keep apples from turning brown.
3. Add brown sugar. I added some cinnamon hear as well, some people might want to wait and add to the top of the applesauce as they serve it.
4. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low 6-8 hours stirring periodically.
5. A few recipes I read suggested running it through a blender at the end, but Matt likes his applesauce on the chunkier side, and I didn't mind the texture.  It's really up to your preference. Enjoy!

PS I hope you all watched Penn State beat Michigan in 
QUADRUPLE overtime last night!! It was an AWESOME game!
