Recipe For Applesauce In A Slow Cooker

  • 1/2 cup Sugar

What Are The Best Apples For Applesauce?

Because you’ll be boiling your apples down, gentler kinds like Golden Delicious and Fuji are perfect for applesauce. Because McIntosh has soft meat that easily breaks down when cooked, it’s an excellent choice for sauce. When making applesauce, leave the skin on for an extra nutritional boost.

Which Apples Make The Sweetest Applesauce?

Fuji. 

Fuji apples are on the sweeter side of the spectrum among the bunch. This fan-favorite apple is a mix between an American Red Delicious and a Rawls Jennet apple that originated in Japan.

Can You Overcook Applesauce?

Yep!  When apples are cooked for an extended period of time, their flavor quickly fades.  If you cook them for an excessive amount of time, they caramelize and develop a dark amber hue, resulting in apple butter. Hmmm…. Maybe I should do that next…

So there you have it – a simple way to make applesauce in your slow cooker. This is a great recipe to use if you want to make a big batch of applesauce that will last for several days or even weeks. Just be sure to store it in an airtight container in the fridge so that it doesn’t spoil.
