This was by far one of the easiest recipes to make. We had the added benefit of the house smelling delicious, too! I found this recipe on southerncooking.com.
- 8-10 peeled, cored and chopped apples (I used macintosh)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup of apple cider or water (I used cider)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a Crock Pot/Slow Cooker and set to low. Cook for 7 to 9 hours. Stir every hour. I took a potato masher and worked it through the mixture to help smooth out the apple sauce. 7 hours for my small Crock Pot seem to be suffice.
This was wonderful served warm. For dessert that night we spooned some of the still warm applesauce over vanilla ice cream and topped with hot caramel sauce. Heavenly!
This can be stored for a few days in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. It also freezes well. Enjoy!
