Nana’s Applesauce

I made this recipe a few weeks ago when my grandmother gave me a sack full of apples from my aunt’s apple tree. It’s simple, fresh, and seasonal. Make it now while you can find incredible apples.

Nana’s Slowcooker Applesauce

  • Apples
  • Water or apple juice (maybe 1 cup)
  • Cinnamon, cloves, hazelnut, and any other spices you fancy
  • Sweetener
  1. Peel and chunk enough apples to fill the slowcooker about an inch deep.
  2. Pour in enough water or apple juice to cover the bottom.
  3. Stir in your preferred spices.
  4. Stir in your sweetener to taste. I prefer brown rice syrup or agave nectar. My grandmother uses Stevia.
  5. Let it cook. I cooked mine on high for a couple of hours, and then simmered it on low for a couple more hours. Check in every once in a while and stir around, if you want.

This may be the simplest thing you ever make, and it’s delicious.
