After learning about Johnny Appleseed and making slow cooker applesauce at school, my older boys were really excited about trying it at home. They helped me peel and core the apples they picked from our aunt and uncle’s tree next door (which was a long, entertaining activity that helped use a lot of apples that would have otherwise rotted on the ground. Total win-win!). They even ate some of our applesauce, which is the biggest test of any food that enters our home. Success!
*Hubs was doing a Paleo challenge with his gym when we made this, so we couldn’t add any sugar to sweeten it. Some apples are sweet enough on their own and don’t need anything added, but these apples needed just a little bit extra, so we used honey.
6 lbs apples, peeled, cored & sliced
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Serve chunky (as shown in the picture above), or process in a blender of food processor until you reach the desired texture. Serve warm or chilled.
