My son loves applesauce and takes a little container of it to school in his lunch everyday!! When he was in kindergarten they made homemade applesauce as a class in a slow cooker! He loved it so much the teacher gave him the recipe…however, over the years I misplaced it but found tons of versions on the web. He loves cinnamon in his so I adapted a recipe that I found (which called for pumpkin pie spice) and swapped it out for cinnamon. It was super yummy! He preferred to eat it warm but it is super yummy right out of the fridge as well. Boy, does it make the house smell wonderful cooking all day! Perfect for a chilly fall day.
The recipe is super easy…just peel & slice apples, mix all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low until tender! I used a hand masher to mash the apples all up into a sauce when they were done. I did leave a few small chucks in mine as my son likes it a little chunky!
