Here's what you'll need:
Vanilla Applesauce + Applesauce Toppings Bar
Total Time: 4 hours 10 minutes
- 3 pounds apple, peeled and cut in chunks
- 1/2 cup sugar, optional
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 pinch salt
- (Optional) Toppings Bar Ingredients: chia, flax seeds, hemp seeds, toasted walnuts, sesame seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries, fresh berries, cinnamon, pie spice, honey, maple syrup
Place the peeled apple chunks in the slow cooker and sprinkle with sugar, lemon, vanilla and salt, then stir to mix. Cover the cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
Uncover the cooker and use a potato masher to coarsely mash the apples, or if you want a really smooth sauce, you can puree in a food processor or blender. (Be careful when handling the hot apples and juice, cover the lid of the processor or blender with a folded towel and hold it closed as you turn on the machine.)
Transfer the applesauce to sterilized jars and let cool, then cover and refrigerate for up to two weeks.
When you're ready to service, place vanilla applesauce in a bowl and add the toppings of your choice.
