NaBloPoMo Prompt: What knowledge do you have that others don’t? Write a “how to” post about anything you’ve got skill for, small or large.
I’m happy this is our prompt today, because I’ve been meaning to share this for sometime.
Last weekend, I was chatting with the SITSGirls community via Twitter, and the question was asked: what is one of your favorite fall recipes? I chimed in, “crock pot applesauce.” Then, I was asked for a link…. doh! I didn’t have a link, I had been wanting to share this recipe for a while; it is SUPER easy, and delicious, but never got around to it, however today is a new day. The kids couldn’t be happier that today, is the day, and you’ll see why 😉
*Your house is going to smell A.MAZE.ING!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 10-12 Medium or Large apples
- 2 tbs cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp allspice
- 1/2 cup of sugar ( you can decrease or add to fit your own diet)
- 1/2 cup of water
How To Make Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce
I purchased a mega bag of “organic” apples,
or so they were marked, because come on those are some big a** apples, at Costco. When I make this applesauce I like to make a lot, I have three kids, and the day I make it, when it’s nice and warm, they all gobble it up.
Peel, core, and chop apples. You do not need to get rid of the skins, because for the most part the skins will cook down, but my kids, for some reason feel that peels-on tastes different. Whatever. I don’t get fancy with my peeling and chopping. If I do not get all the peel off no biggie, and I’m going to smash the apples anyway, so need to measure chunkage.
Once you have your apples all peeled (or not), cored, and chopped, drop them in your slow cooker, and top them with your spices. Add your water, give a quick stir and pop the lid on. I cooked my applesauce on high for 3-4 hours.
You may need to mash your apples, of course, this depends on how you like your sauce. I let my boy get all HULK SMASH on the apples
This little guy was eager to help, because he was eager to eat!! Annnd for his help, a little after dinner dessert, warm cinnamon applesauce on vanilla ice cream.
Super easy, right? I hope you will try this out.
