I have an assignment for you this weekend: Make crock pot applesauce.
You have time for it, I promise you. Even better, the time you spend will be rewarded with a sweet smelling kitchen and a delicious, healthy snack that should last you a week. (Oh, and moms! You can feed this to your babies/kids. It's free of added sugar.)
I highlight my 15-minute applesauce (stove-top) recipe a lot. But my favorite way to make it is in the crock pot. The process takes longer, yes, but is ultimately far less effort. Did I mention how amazing your kitchen will smell. For HOURS?!
You can check out this recipe for crock pot Ginger Gold Applesauce I posted a few years ago. But it's really as simple as this:
Season (1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 cup lemon juice or even cider).
Cook (2 to 3 hours on high). Then smash (chunkier) or blend (smoother).
Promise me you'll make it this fall treat for yourself weekend. Even go apple-picking if it gives you an excuse. And if you do and choose to blog about it, I'd love for you to link up in the comments!
As well, what is your favorite apple for applesauce-making? I prefer Ginger Golds. My favorite apple to eat? Pink Lady.
Today on Writing Chapter Three I am writing about screen time. Television hours and guidelines for babies and children.
