Fall is finally showing up, and I want to share an easy way to make homemade applesauce. There’s not High Fructose Corn Syrup, and you can sweeten it as little or as much as you want. Plus, who doesn’t love fresh applesauce?
8-12 apples. I used a variety: Gala, Jonathan, Rambo and Honeycrisp. I like the variety of apple flavors
1 lemon peel
1tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
5 Tbsp brown sugar (loosely packed)
Peel, core and slice the apples. Place all ingredients into the crockpot, and cook on low for 6 hours.
When it’s done, you can mash with a potato masher for a chunky applesauce, or blend with an immersion blender for a more pureed version.
Cool, serve, and enjoy!
