Slow Cooked Apple Sauce
There is something about fall. The crisp air, the vibrant foliage and the house smelling of slow cooked apple sauce. Yum! Fall is my favorite season.
This recipe is really a no-brainer. You just dump the apples in the slow cooker with some water and let it cook for a couple of hours while you go about doing your business. Its that easy! My kids normally eat it as a snack or sometimes simply as dessert after dinner.
A warm bowl of homemade applesauce … I’ll take it any day!
