Apples are in season and baking apples are a great price. This makes for the perfect time to make your own apple sauce.
8-10 baking apples- cored, peeled, and sliced
Juice of a lemon or orange
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of sugar
Place apples in a crockpot. Juice lemon over them and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Stir to coat.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Turn off crockpot and let cool. Remove half to a container or jar. This will be your chunky batch. Purée the remaining with an immersion blender and add to another container so now you have a smooth batch.
How I use mine.
*In my baked oatmeal recipe that I’ll share later this week.
*As a side with pork and sauerkraut, that we eat every trick or treat night.
*As a snack with vanilla yogurt and granola.
