I always peruse the news back home. Can’t help myself, I like to know what is going on, even tho I’m not there. This includes previous duty stations, not just where I grew up. But I digress. On the local news website there was a slow cooker method for making apple sauce. A very EASY slow cooker method. No recipe. Just a vague how to. For some reason, I couldn’t resist.
So I peeled some apples. Macintosh, Granny Smith and a Red Delicious.
Then I cored, chopped and dumped into a slow cooker with a handful of left over fresh cranberries to up the tartness as the apples seemed a bit too sweet.
For the record, if you don’t have slow cooker liners (sold next to oven bags in the grocery store) get them. They make clean up a breeze. Then I turned the slow cooker on low and let it cook for a few hours before adding two whole cinnamon sticks. Lid back on and it went for the rest of the day. I mashed it with the potato masher and voila! I had apple sauce.
