Crockpot Honey Spice Applesauce

5:30:00 AM

Is it fall yet? Not here in the Carolinas, where the A/C is cranked up and still not managing to keep up. But it's September, and that means it's apple season!! Every year, I cannot wait to make applesauce in my slowcooker. It's a so-simple dish that even though my kiddos are getting bigger, we still all love.

And because my kids are getting bigger, I've changed things up a little with my recipe. Last year, I made a simple spiced applesauce. This year, I decided to add some honey and a different spice combination. If you've never made applesauce in your slowcooker, you need to try this.You simply won't go back to store bought applesauce again.

Here's what you need:

12-14 apples, cut into eighths. Be sure to check that all the apples fit into your slowcooker!
1 cup water
1 2 inch piece of whole cinnamon
1 1/2 tablespoons whole allspice
3-4 tablespoons honey

Dump the apples, water and cinnamon into the crockpot. Place the allspice in a tea ball and place in the crockpot. It's going to look like there's not enough water, but trust me, there's enough. I don't peel my apples because there's loads of fiber in the peel, but if you don't like the peel, you can always peel your apples.

Cook on high for 4 hours. This is what you'll see after it's cooked.

You can smash the apples by hand or you can use an immersion blender. Stir in the honey. Makes 2 quarts. I freeze my apple sauce. If you want to can this, you'll need to add some lemon juice.
