I started making crockpot applesauce several years ago after we went apple picking and had an obscene amount of apples laying around.

To be totally honest, I didn’t do it for a few years because peeling and slicing the apples was an enormous pain in the patoot.  It took forever.  Mr. O was crushed.  Crockpot applesauce was one of his favorites.  So when he asked me to start making it again I said I’d do it on one condition; That he get me the Apple Peeler, Corer & Slicer from Pampered Chef.

He did!  And we’ve been enjoying homemade applesauce ever since.  This year Miss O even got in on the action and helped me peel.

Making crockpot applesauce couldn’t be easier.  Peel, core, and slice the apples.  Toss them in a crockpot with some cinnamon, sugar, and ginger, and let it cook on low for 8 hours.  If you want to get crazy, you can stir it after 4 hours.

Use a standard potato masher to mash the apples to the consistency you like.  You can even use an immersion blender if you like it completely smooth.

Let it cool and jar it (or put it in any storage container).  I got 5 pints of applesauce out of my batch – 2 quarts, 1 pint.

Of course, before you do that, have some straight out of the crockpot.  Warm applesauce is sooooo good!
