Crockpot applesauce and Oct 09 Tasty ToolsPosted: October 20, 2009
An easy great way to have homemade applesauce. A few steps and let it go! I found this on A Year of Slow Cooking and it is great! I doubled it for extras to freeze and use in handpies.
I am also submitting this to Joelen’s Tasty Tools Event. Check out her blog at the end of the month for all the great slow cooker/crockpot recipes!
4 large apples, skinned ,cored, and cut in quarters
juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 T brown sugar
1/4 cup water
Skin, core, and cut your apples into quarters. Plop the pieces into your crockpot. Add the juice from the lemon, and the water. Pour in the vanilla (I used imitation–we were out of the good stuff), and add the cinnamon and brown sugar.
Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. When the apples are super tender, mash with a potato masher or large fork. Enjoy
