Homemade Apple Sauce
I have seen recipes for this everywhere. I thought…what is the big deal? Its applesauce. Where is the big benefit to making this yourself? How much of a challenge could applesauce be? Why all the fuss? Accordingly, I had to try this and see if I could make it better.
Wow….now I get it. This was great. I don’t think I could ever use a jar again. If you are in the small minority of people who haven’t seen or tried a recipe for make it yourself, you should give it a shot.
- 8 apples peeled, cored and cut in chunks (I used a mix of granny smith, golden delicious and honeycrisp)
- ¼ cup of brown sugar (I love those pre-measured and sealed sacks)
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 lemon peel
- Teaspoon of lemon juice
Place in a slow cooker on low for six hours stirring occasionally. At the end of six hours remove the cinnamon stick and lemon peel. If you would like a finer sauce use a potato masher or immersion blender to puree. I had it just the way it was and I can’t stop eating it. I already need to make more. This makes about three cups.
