Celebrate The Simple

The afternoon is rainy and cold, most chores around the house are completed and the season is fall…let’s make some applesauce. The recipe is simple, almost embarrassingly simple, however nothing beats the taste and smell of homemade applesauce. Especially if you just enjoyed an apple picking weekend! I make a large batch, it freezes beautifully.

The Usual Cast Of Characters

1. Ten to twelve medium sized apples. I use a variety of sweet and tart apples. Granny Smith and Macintosh work well together.

2. 1/2 cup sugar brown or white. Brown adds a deeper flavor. 3. 1/2 cup Red Hot Candies.

4. 3 Tablespoons lemon juice.

The Steps to Glory

1. Slice and core apples. Yes, I keep the skin on. Tough peels will float to the top and are easily scooped out. The rest will be blended in with the immersion blender at the end.

2. Layer apples in the crockpot along with the other ingredients.

3. Cool on high for 2-3 hours or until the apples release the juice. Switch to low for another 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.

4. Blend apples in crockpot with an immersion blender until you reach desired texture. Cook for another hour.

5. Cool and enjoy warm or refrigerate if you enjoy cool applesauce. Freeze in containers to enjoy all year.

Don’t you just love the fall, even the rainy lazy days staying cozy inside?

With memories of beautiful fall weather
