Applesauce is hands-down one of my favorite snacks. If you've ever tasted it homemade, you know it's waaay better than anything you get at the grocery store. As much as I love the made-from-scratch version, I don't usually have time during the busy holiday season to stand over the stove and stir apples as they cook down- that's where the slow cooker comes in! Check out this easy recipe for
Spiced Applesauce in the Slow Cooker by Lana Stuart.
Peel, core, and quarter 6-8 apples, add lemon peel and spices (cinnamon, brown sugar, etc), and let the slow cooker work it's magic. Added plus- your house will smell amazing all day!
If you want to try something a little different, take a look at this recipe for Slow Cooked Pears with Lemon and Thyme.
Happy slow cooking!
