Fall is just around the corner, it’s going to bring us gorgeous apples of every variety and color that we can eat, bake with or make APPLESAUCE with! Applesauce in the crock pot no less. If I would have know how easy and delicious this was I would never have waited till now to make it! The beauty of the recipe is that after the apples have cooked down in the crock pot with a little water, you can taste the apples and sweeten them with the amount of sugar you want and flavor it the same way, then cook for another 30 minutes. You can leave the apples a little chunky, which would be great to top oatmeal with or smooth it out. I went somewhere in the middle with the texture, a little chunky and smooth. To keep your applesauce nice and thick while cooking, put a clean kitchen towel over the top of the crock pot before you place the lid on. This will keep the condensation on the lid from going into the apples as they cook and adding more water. I hope you enjoy this easy delicious recipe for Crock Pot Applesauce as much as I did! Enjoy!
