Crockpot Applesauce (so simple, a zombie could make it)

It’s apple season - let's take advantage of the low apple prices and whip up this simple crowd-pleaser. This is a recipe that is hard to mess up.

You will need:

·        A crock pot

·        As many apples as you can fit in it

·        Juice of ½ lemon

·        (Optional) Cinnamon stick or powder

·        (Optional) Brown sugar if you are a sugar addict


1.      Wash apples

2.      Peel the apples if desired – If I am making this for my household, I save myself a lot of time and skip the peeling. It adds fiber which makes the applesauce more filling.

3.      De-core and chop each apple and toss into the crockpot along with the optional cinnamon stick and sweetener only if you have picky eaters. I don’t find sweetener necessary.

4.      Cook for 2.5 hours on high or 5 hours on low, stirring occasionally while the apples break down.

5.      Remove cinnamon stick and enjoy warm or cool. Try sprinkling cinnamon on top to serve.
