Easy slow-cooker applesauce

September 30, 2013 § 4 Comments

This is the season for fresh apples.  We keep a big bowl of fresh apples on the kitchen counter, where they’re always ready for breakfast or a quick snack.  If the apples sit too long and become a little spongy or soft, don’t throw them away…turn them into applesauce.  It’s so easy in the slow-cooker.

I used this applesauce in homemade muffins, but it’s also nice by itself for breakfast, with hot oatmeal, or  with pork chops for dinner.  It freezes well, too.  Just spoon it into 1-cup containers and pop it into the freezer.

Homemade applesauce in the slow cooker

10 peeled and cored apples, sliced

1/4 cup sugar (optional)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Place the apples in the slow cooker.  Sprinkle over the sugar and cinnamon.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Remove lid, stir gently and serve.   Depending upon the size of the apples you use, you’ll have 3-4 cups of applesauce.
