Crock Pot Applesauce!
Slow Cooker Sunday's during the Fall and Winter months are my favorite because it's so easy to throw everything in and run out the house. Pinterest is full of great recipes for crock pot. You can literally make everything in their from a whole chicken to dessert. It's good to invest in a crock pot with a digital timer just in case you don't make it home and your meal won't turn into mush.
I picked up a bag of golden delicious apples at the farmers market to make applesauce for the week, I used to buy store bought applesauce, but found that it is so easy and much more flavorful when you make your own. I found a super easy recipe on Pinterest. The ingredients are affordable and easy to find. A bag of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla extract, brown sugar and water is all you need. The most tedious part is peeling and slicing your apples. Toss everything into the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours or 3 hours on high until the apples break down and the flavors come together. Your kitchen will smell like a crisp Fall day. The great thing is that the applesauce can be eaten hot or cold, even though I prefer it to be warm. It is delicious as a side dish for breakfast. It can also top your oatmeal, waffles, add it to yogurt or even serve it over vanilla ice cream.
Don't be afraid to try new things with your crock pot. A lot can happen when you dump your favorite ingredients together and give it time to come together!
