Crock-Pot Homemade Applesauce

In explanation of the huge bag of apple cores I brought to work for the horses today, I mentioned to a few people that I’d made homemade applesauce the night before. They then asked for the recipe. I can’t take credit for it, as much as I’d like to – I found it on Pinterest here.

But I did take pictures of my attempt to make something from scratch yesterday, so naturally I’ll blog about it.IMG_7049

What you’ll need:

  • 6 apples (I used gala)
  • 1/2 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons of honey

Instructions:

  1. Cut the apples into 1-inch chunks. No peeling necessary!
  2. Throw apples into a Crock-Pot.
  3. As you put the apples in, put the cinnamon stick somewhere near the bottom of the pot.
  4. Realize your Crock-Pot is reallyΒ small.IMG_7052
  5. Pour the 1/2 cup of pineapple juice on top of the apples.
  6. Drizzle the honey and sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon over the apples.
  7. Cook on high for 4 hours.
  8. IMG_7090Mash/stir the apples together.
  9. Marvel at your cooking skills.IMG_7094
  10. Let cool for 20 or 30 minutes
  11. Eat as much as you want, then put the rest in cute little Mason jars.IMG_7096

Enjoy, you guys!
