Warm Applesauce, It’s for Breakfast

Feel that cold? That’s a September morning in Maine.  There is nothing you can do about it but simply embrace it.  The sun will warm the house up soon enough, so why not  start your day with a warm concoction of apple goodness.  This feeds not only the body, but also the fall spirit as you start your day.

Did you think that I got up this morning to make this? Oh no, this is one of those handy crockpot recipes that cooks all night so its ready in the morning.  The best part of this recipe is that your house smells amazing as soon as you wake.

Crockpot Applesauce:

Peal and quarter loads of apples.  I used Macintosh apples.

Fling them in the crockpot.  Add some water (I had about four pounds of apples and a cup of water).

Add a cinnamon stick (You could also add nutmeg)

Squeeze a little lemon (or add lemon peel if you are feeling fancy)

Add some sugar (I used 1/4 c. brown and and a little bit of white).  You could also use maple syrup, which would be delicious.

Add a dash of salt.

Then cook on low for ten hours.  In the morning simply give a little stir.  We had ours with local maple sausage and hot cocoa.

This is really too easy not to try.


PS-I’m hoping to make it to November without heat because that’s how we roll!

    With apples plentiful right now, this is a great way to make them last. I like the idea of slow cooking the applesauce.
