Recipe: Deliciously Pink Slow-Cooker Applesauce

September 26, 2016

With just two ingredients (one of them is water) and three steps, this isn't even really a recipe, but it's definitely worth having in your culinary repertoire.

 

I got the basics from a local mom friend who is a whiz in the kitchen, and she emphasized the use of Jonathan apples. Of course I only had Honeycrisps on hand the first time around, but it wasn't nearly as pretty or sweet as when I made it with the aforementioned Jonathans. Also, I added the slow cooker part because I'm lazy and it's easy.  

 
So go ahead and put all those freshly picked apples to good use. You won't regret it.

 

DELICIOUSLY PINK SLOW COOKER APPLESAUCE

 

Makes: about 3-4 cups of applesauce

 

INGREDIENTS  

  • 6-8 medium-sized Jonathan apples

  • 1/2 c water

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. Core and slice apples, leaving skins on 

  2. Throw slices into slow cooker with water, turn on high and let cook for about 2 1/2 hours until they are soft and easy to mash with a wooden spoon

  3. Process through a food mill or a fine-meshed sieve into a large bowl


NOTES


- Kids can help put the slices in the slow cooker and turn it on, and also to process the sauce if it's not to hot
​- Applesauce should keep in the fridge for a week or in the freezer (in airtight containers) for up to 3 months
