I absolutely adore this time of year. Falling leaves, apples in everything, cozy nights. And baking. So. Much. Baking. I love making the house smell cozy, like fall. Earlier this week, I decided to finally try using my crockpot to make something. And that something happened to be homemade applesauce. Not only did this make my house smell absolutely delish, guys, it was sooo easy.
Oh, and it only has 2 ingredients. Apples and cinnamon.
Chop them up..
But this was the most delightful thing (and smell!) to wake up to on a rainy Tuesday morning.
- 10 apples (I used a mix of Granny Smith, Gala, and Jazz)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon (more or less depending on your taste)
- Rinse apples, then peel and core.
- Chop into chunks– size depending on how chunky you like your applesauce/how lazy you are (you can always use an immersion blender or regular blender to get the chunks out later).
- Place in a crockpot (mine’s 5 qt.) and sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.
Oh yeah. Look at that wonderfulness! My roommate and I both loved it. I’m planning on using some of it in another recipe, of the non-food variety. Have I captured your interest yet? Visit back soon, little loves!
