Making Applesauce in a Crock Pot

Making Applesauce in a Crock Pot

There are benefits to consuming apples on a regular basis. A medium apple, with peel contains 4.4 grams of dietary fiber which is a good amount. Peeling an apple means throwing away more than half the fiber. Apples contain soluble fiber as well as insoluble fiber. Both types of fiber can help keep you fuller for longer periods of time which can help keep your calorie intake lower.

With the bumper apple crop in Northeast Wisconsin, I have been making apple sauce. I started making apple sauce in a crock pot and found this method to be a great time saver.

Crockpot Apple Sauce
10 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
½ cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup sugar

Place all ingredients in crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours. I then put the mixture in a blender so it is smooth. An immersible blender will also work. I then place applesauce in freezer containers and freeze.
