Recently, I organized an event at our Georgetown office called Pumpkin Palooza. It was a lot of fun and we had a ton of people come out to enjoy the day with us. Part of the event was an apple bobbing station. We had gotten some apples from a local orchard, they provided us with their seconds to use for this. If you know anything about seconds, they aren’t always the best apple to just bite into, but they are wonderful to cook with. After the event we had lots of apples left, apparently kids don’t like to eat the apples they bob for anymore :). Since I don’t like apple pie I decided to try a simple crock pot applesauce to make lots of applesauce so that I could freeze it and enjoy it all winter long. It turned out to be super easy and delicious as well!
- Apples (approximately 10 large or 20-25 small apples)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- Put water, cinnamon and sugar in crock pot and stir.
- Peel, core and slice your apples.
- Fill your crock pot about 3/4 full with apples.
- Stir your apples around to help mix in the water mixture through the whole pot.
- Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
Yes it is that simple! And that delicious. My next step was to just make several crock pots full of applesauce and freeze it so I can enjoy anytime this winter :).
