One of my favorite things to make in the fall is applesauce. The only problem is having to peel, core, and slice all those apples.
A few years back I discovered an apple wedger and my applesauce making days changed forever.
It is much faster this way. I first bought mine at IKEA but my current one is from Pampered Chef.
Using the wedger makes this an easy recipe for kids to make. I always enjoy finding things for my kids to do to help in the kitchen.
I like keeping my applesauce as pure as possible. I don’t add any sugar and I also like keep the peels on for added nutrition and then I put everything in the slow cooker so I can forget about it.
It’s so easy and the house smells amazing.
Here’s my recipe:
Slow cooker Applesauce
10 lbs apples (about a 15-20 apples)
1/2 cup water
Using an apple wedger slice your apples. Id you don’t have a wedger don’t worry, just core them and slice them.
Place them in your slow cooker, pour the water over them and cook on low for 6 hours.
Once apples are very soft, use your immersion blender and puree.
