I know I’ve mentioned this several (hundred) times, but I recently learned how to make homemade applesauce.
Which tickles my father’s palate to no end, since that means I can make his favorite cake on a whim – or, when I receive a text message (like I did on Sunday) that says, “I discovered that there is no applesauce cake in my freezer…..just sayin…”
Modern technology at its finest….
In addition to the ubiquitous cake, it’s a great way to use up apples that are alllllllllllmost past their prime, because a certain daughter (Sabrina) conveniently forgot that the apples she picked out were in the bottom refrigerator drawer.
Because out of sight = out of mind.
Homemade Applesauce –
Peel, core and slice as many apples as you like. Place in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Stir, vent the lid and continue to cook on low for another 4-6 hours, stirring every hour or so, until the applesauce is thick.
