Slow Cooker Applesauce

We went apple picking this weekend and for some reason, I thought it would be a good idea to pick the 1/2 bushel

That’s roughly the equivalent to 24 pounds of apples??!!

What was I thinking??  Well, now we’ll have to put all of these crisp, delicious apples to good use

The easiest place to start is with some applesauce made in the slow cooker

The only real work here is peeling the apples and the slow cooker does the rest!

I peeled and cored 8 cups of mixed variety apples – about 7 to 8 apples, depending on their size

Cut each wedge into smaller pieces – you don’t need to be exact here.  They’ll all cook down together

You’ll also need a 1/2 cup of loosely packed brown sugar, a quarter cup of white wine and a teaspoon of cinnamon

Put all ingredients in the slow cooker and stir to mix

We use the Instant Pot slow/pressure cooker

Set your slow cooker on low for about 4 hours

I remove the lid for the last 1/2 hour to let some of the liquid cook off

The apples really break down but if you like it really smooth, you can blend to remove any chunks

I have to make it both ways – some of us are chunky and some of us are smooth

This will last in the fridge for a week to 10 days unless everyone eats it sooner
