It’s Fall! Apple season! Cooking season! If you want the world’s healthiest Fall snack AND you want your whole house to smell like apple pie, make Crock Pot Applesauce.
You don’t have to pick your own apples.
But if you DO pick your own apples and the awesomeness of the sunny, crisp fall day gets the better of you, and you end up with more apples than would seem reasonable, applesauce is a perfect use for them! I usually only pick them myself once per year. The rest of the time, I buy bags of apples from the grocery store… the beauty of applesauce is that the apples can be slightly bruised, mushy, imperfect, etc., and you can get away with buying the least expensive varieties.
