Homemade Slow Cooker Applesauce
Fall is in the air. The temps seemed to have broken, school just got back into session and the Fall fruit and vegetables are all getting ripe! I headed up north to my in laws cabin over Labor Day weekend and saw that their apple trees were covered with ripe apples. I couldn't help myself and plucked some off the branches and at them immeditly. Then I started to think of all the tasty things one could make with apples. One of them is homemade Applesauce! So simple and delicious it's a great way to use the overload of apples. Check out this crazy simple and freaking delicious recipe below!

Here's what you need for this recipe:
- 16 Cups cored and chopped apples (I left the peels on)
- 1 Cup water
- 1 TBSP Lemon Juice
- 2 TBSP Ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 TBSP Ground Ginger
- 1/2 TBSP Ground Nutmeg
Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker. Place the cover on the slow cooker and turn it on low. Let it cook for 6-8 hours, stirring every few hours. Then you can mash or blend it depending on the consistency you prefer. I mash it using a potato masher and leave some chunks because that's how Katie and I like it. Then enjoy! Put the leftovers uncovered in the refrigerator until its cold. Then divide it into sealed containers. It will last a few weeks in your refrigerator or a couple months in your freezer.
