September is just rolling right along, isn’t it?  We always look forward to the abundance of apples that fall brings.  We love picking our own apples when we have time!

Time to make some applesauce!  This recipe is about as simple as they get.  The only real labor involved is peeling and coring the apples – a chore that I have made incredibly easier by using this apple peeler/corer/slicer.

You will need:

  • 20-30 apples (peeled, cored)
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon

Note: You can absolutely lessen the sugar if you’d like.  This is totally personal preference.

Combine all of the ingredients in your slow cooker.  Turn to low.  I literally cook these alllllllll day on low, stirring every few hours.  Let me tell you – they will make your house smell better than any candle ever created!  By the time you take them out of the slow cooker, the apples will be caramelized and ready for blending.

At this point, you can definitely just blend your apples and put them in containers for freezing.  I find the apples to be a bit too hot for me to work with after coming out of the slow cooker, so I like to transfer them to a large bowl or dish and place them in the refrigerator overnight to cool off.

The next morning, I pull out my trusty blender and blend the apples on puree or liquefy mode.

The applesauce goes into freezer containers that I pull out one-by-one throughout the winter to enjoy with our dinners.

Of course, I ALWAYS leave out a sizable portion to enjoy THAT VERY SAME NIGHT.  There’s nothing quite like FRESH HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE.  Every member of my family absolutely loves it!
