Slow Cooking Thursday - Crockpot Applesauce


Good morning ladies :)

Sorry this is going up so late today, I've been really sick the past few days with a stomach bug.  It's been very hard keeping anything down and then once that part was done with, it felt like I was hit by a truck, couldn't lay in bed because my body hurt so bad, couldn't walk properly, sounded like I had no voice.  Just plain miserable.

It's the first day that I'm starting to feel normal, so I'm taking it easy and trying not to overdo it.

Anyway, here's the recipe for today.......



Homemade Crockpot Applesauce

Homemade Crockpot Applesauce

5 big apples or 10 small ones (I like using Honeycrisp)
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup of sugar
cinnamon


Peel, core and cut the apples into small chunks, drop them in the crockpot. Add the water and the sugar. You don't have to add the cinnamon but we love it, so I sprinkle a good amount on top, just according to taste.

Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or until the apples are mushy.

You can leave them chunky if you like your applesauce that way, but we like ours pureed, so I just use my immersion blender and puree them right in the crockpot.

Pour into jars and either process them for canning, or if you're eating them right away, let the applesauce cool down and then place in the refrigerator.

We also like eating the applesauce warm.

Enjoy!

We've had our share of summer bugs, it's certainly no fun! I make homemade crockpot applesauce in my class every September in honor of Johnny Appleseed Day, the kids love it! & it's the only applesauce I eat & love as well!
