I made applesauce a bunch of times for Quentin while we were in Oklahoma City because I could get free apples from the pavilion. It was delicious and so, so easy. You literally just stir and it melts into this wonderful sauce.
I found the recipe on my friend Liz's blog and just left out the sugar, although the dessert applesauce with ice cream sounds awesome! I also made it with sweet potatoes and increased the cook time to ten hours, also very good.
- 8 medium/large apples, rinsed, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon)
- Place the apples and the water in a 4 to 5 quart slow cooker and cook for 5 to 6 hours on low heat.
- Stir in the pumpkin pie spice and cook for 30 more mins.
