“Send Down Some More” Slow Cooker Applesauce
A friend of mine recently ordered from the slow, confusing and archaic ordering system of our local orchard. Instead of ordering 10 apples, she ordered 10 quarts and $50 worth of apples. Friend, this post is for you!
This slow cooker applesauce is so easy and makes your house smell incredible! It was always a favorite when I was growing up. It’s total comfort food and is best when eaten warm...hence the name that my family gave it “Send Down Some More” because that’s what your cozy stomach will tell you. And with this crazy, freezing April weather, you might want to double this batch!
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1. Peel all of your apples.
2. Cut the apple in half and use a melon baller to remove the seeds and cut off the stem and bottom part.
3. Dice into 1 inch chunks and throw into slow cooker.
4. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon on top.
5. Put the lid on and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
6. Take the lid off. These apples were super juicy so I removed some liquid and then used an immersion blender to blend the cooked apples. If you don’t have this, just use a potato smasher or even a fork.
7. Dig right in and enjoy warm!
Note: this recipe freezes SO good. So if you have a ton of apples, double or triple this batch up. Then freeze in plastic containers or ziplock bags.
