Slow Cooker Recipe Showcase: Make Your Own Applesauce

by Mackenzie on February 5, 2013

This week’s Slow Cooker Showcase recipe is for yummy Homemade Applesauce using Amee’s recipe from Madame Deals! You only need a few ingredients to make a great tasting homemade applesauce and the added benefit is your house will smell like an apple pie!!

making applesauceIngredients:

  • 8 apples
  • apple peel
  • Lemon
  • 1 Cinnamon stick or the sprinkle stuff 1/2 tsp
  • 1T of Vanilla
  • 3T of brown sugar (light)
*Note: Amee didn’t have light so she used dark which just makes darker apple sauce. You can also use less sugar depending on how sweet you like your sauce.
This is a super easy recipe. You will need to peel and cut your apples. Then place them in the crockpot on low for 6 hours. You need to be prepared for how yummy it will smell and taste. If you leave this in the crockpot for 4 hours you will most likely have to blend it. If you leave it in for 6 hours then you can use a fork to blend it.
