GCC Recipe Swap

Remember that 40lb box of apples? Remember the kids getting their braces on? Enter...soft, unsweetened, no mess, EASY homemade applesauce. Enjoy.

EASY Homemade Applesauce

9 sweet apples (I used red delicious)
1/2 cup water or orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core and quarter your apples. Put it all in the crockpot and cook on low for 5 hours or until softened. Use potato masher to break up any whole pieces. Can eat immediately, refrigerate, or freeze.

Good luck with the braces! My eldest was eating steak 24 hours later, but my youngest lived on smoothies for a week :(

You can make this even easier by just chopping up the apples (skin, seeds and all!) and putting them in the crockpot. Then, after apples are soft, mash them with a potato masher and run it all through a sieve. Makes a little more applesauce this way and you get more of the nutrition from the skin and seeds as well.
