If you’ve read any of my food posts before, you know that while I LOVE to cook/bake, I’m a huge fan of easy + semi-homemade recipes. Particularly ones with few ingredients + minimal work!
Today, I want to share one of them with you. It requires 4 ingredients and essentially has only 2 steps…
Homemade applesauce. 🙂
When visiting my parents this weekend, my Dad told me he recently picked a bunch of apples + wanted to know if I knew how to make applesauce. Seeing as it may be the easiest thing in the world to make, I actually did + jumped at the opportunity to cook with him. QT with Dad and an opp for a fun blog post? Win-win for all!
I love this recipe because there really isn’t much to actually do other than peel the apples [which my Dad so graciously volunteered his services for]! If you have an abundance of apples or are looking for something to do to get you into the Fall spirit, I highly suggest you try recipe this out! 🙂
STEP 1: Gather ingredients!
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 10 cooking apples [peeled + chopped]
STEP 2: Throw everything in the crockpot + cook on low for 8-10 hours [or high for 3-4 hours].
Do this on a Sunday, or a day when you plan to stay home, because once this delicious smell begins to make it’s way though your entire house…you will not want to leave.
While cooking, recruit your Dad to shoot an aerial crockpot shot…
Once all apples have been reduced to mush, you’re done! Taste test + add additional sugar or cinnamon if you feel it may need more. Luckily, we nailed it on the first try. 🙂
Serve it warm with whipped or ice cream…or enjoy it cold!
An easy, tasty, seasonal indulgence! 🙂
