It is definitely starting to feel like fall around here… We had such a nice summer in Santa Cruz, one of the sunnier ones that I can remember. We had lots of days full of abundant sunshine and blue skies. It’s a little sad to see it end!
The cooler weather motivated me to pull out my slow-cooker again, we had taken a break from it for the last couple of months (as you could imagine!). The in-laws had given us a huge bag of apples from their tree, and in my effort to not waste anything in our fridge, I decided to make applesauce with them. Fall is the perfect time for applesauce, the markets & friends/families trees are overflowing with apples… plus, a house filled with the smell of cinnamon, definitely means fall to me.
This recipe is super easy & tasty! I think it will be a good one for Indyanna’s school lunch one day!
10 apples, peeled, cored & sliced
juice of half a tangelo (you can also use an orange)
1 tablespoon cinnamon (I like mine with a lot of cinnamon!)
1/4 cup honey
- Place all ingredients in a slow-cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Mash apples with a fork.
- Remove from slow-cooker and place in a medium size bowl and refrigerate overnight. You could eat this right away, but the flavors are much better if you let it sit overnight.
