If you've never made homemade applesauce, this is your excuse to try it. Making applesauce in your slow cooker couldn't be easier and it's worlds different in taste than anything you can find at the store. Just chop the apples, add to the crock, cover, and cook. Peeling the apples is completely optional as most of the peel will be removed when the cooked apples are churned through a food mill.

I like to use a sweeter variety of apple, like Gala, so that my applesauce is naturally sweet.

Ingredients

  • 8 ??? 10 medium organic gala apples
  • enough water to cover the bottom of your slow cooker
  • Cooking Directions

    Add just enough water to the slow cooker to completely cover the bottom.

    Chop and core your apples. Big pieces are perfect. No need to peel them. Put the apples into the slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 5 ??? 6 hours.

    Run the cooked apples through a food mill using the large disk for chunky applesauce (my favorite) and a small disk for smooth applesauce. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate.
