Jack and I recently went apple picking for his 3rd birthday. I’ve made a couple of apple recipes thanks to Amy’s Finer Things.
My favorite though has been the homemade applesauce. I went through a couple of recipes and then did my own thing from those recipes. There is really no “recipe” because I did a little of this and a little of that. Here is what I did:
I peeled and chunked my apples then put them in a crock pot.
I put just enough apple juice to cover the bottom.
I sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar.
I sent the crock on the 8 hrs low option.
My crock pot is super powerful for some reason so it only took a few hours on low for the apples to get soft.
Once they were soft, I mashed them with my hand mixer. I left mine a little chunky.
I’ll tell you what, when I ate the sauce while it was warm and it tasted just like apple pie but without the crust. I love apple pie but not a huge fan of crust, so it was perfect for me. My family loved this so much, I’ve made it twice this week.
