Fall is almost here.  Crisp, cool air.  Sweaters and scarves.  Slow cookers and comfort food.  Apples and Pumpkin.  Who’s ready?

Homemade Apple Sauce is so simple.  Why do I not make it year round?  I don’t know.

The best part is that you choose the ingredients and flavors.  I added bourbon, orange and  brown sugar for an apple sauce for adults.  But, feel free to omit the bourbon and add a pinch of cinnamon.  You will have a treat that kids and adults will love!

Give this Crock Pot Apple Sauce Recipe a try.  Perfect for Fall and apple picking season!

Slow Cooker Apple Sauce

Just peel and chop the apples.  Place ingredients in your slow cooker and let it do its thing.  Easy.

I am loving my new Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker.  It is great for making winter and fall comfort food!

How to make homemade apple sauce in your slow cooker

Once the apples are cooked, mash or blend to your desired consistency.  I used my KitchenAid Hand Blender to get a pureed but slightly chunky apple sauce.
