Applesauce in a Crock Pot


A couple of weeks of go we took a walking field trip to an apple tree a couple blocks away from the school.  Each kindergarten student got to pick a couple of apples from the tree and we hauled them back in a wagon to our classroom.  The following day we made applesauce right in our classroom!

I am not sharing this because it is new concept or even a unique, creative recipe.  I am sharing this today just as a reminder how easy this is!

Every child should share in the experience making applesauce in the fall!

It is as easy as 1, 2, 3.


Applesauce in a Crock Pot

1)  Harvest (purchase), wash, and peel and core apples.  


2) Put apples in a crock pot and add some cinnamon and sugar.  (I added about 3 T. of cinnamon and 1 cup sugar).  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Your house (or classroom) will soon smell like a warm apple pie.


3) Use a potato masher to press apples to desired texture.


Serve and enjoy!
