Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce
My kids could drink applesauce. It’s one of their favorite things and they really enjoyed making this recipe with me. I had a hard time though because one of my helpers couldn’t stop eating the apple slices! Once it was finished thought they it was a hit with the entire family. If you love apples as a dessert then make sure to also try my Slow Cooker Fried Apples. It’s another family favorite.
This is such an easy recipe! Start by peeling, coring, and slicing all your apples. Once finished toss them in the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients and mix. Once it’s done cooking and the apples are really tender you mash. You can mash them with a potato masher for a thick and chunky apple sauce or use an immersion blender. For the texture pictured use an immersion blender or move cooked recipe to a blender and blend until smooth.
How to store Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce:
You can store this in a clean mason jar or airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. If you want to make and freeze then allow your applesauce to cool and place in a freezer bag then freeze. This can stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months.
