My Husband loves apple sauce. Almost every day he takes one of those Motts single-serve cups to work in his lunch bag. Now, while I’m happy that he’s eating fruit I figure there has to be a better (read: more cost effective and slightly healthier) option. So, after searching for a crock pot applesauce recipe I combined a few and came up with this.
Christopher loved it! I’m so happy! Now, I can make a big batch and have it last twice as long as the single-serve cups!
4lbs. Apples (I used Macintosh because that’s what the local farm had ready in 1/2 peck containers – no time to pick my own)
1/4C. Sugar (I used Splenda)
1T. Lemon juice
Wash, core and slice apples and add to crock pot. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon and stir.
Pour water and lemon juice over apples, stir again.
Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Husband Rating – 4.5 out of 5 – “So good! I love it warm.”
