Ugly picture, but tasty applesauce. It might even get turned into apple butter.
I personally didn't add any spices, since I plan to use this for another recipe. If I mill it into a jar of apple butter, I'll simmer it for a while longer with some allspice, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. If I decide to make it into a filling, I'd just stir in a little cornstarch and cook it until the liquid thickens a touch more. It's really versatile stuff.
Small Batch Slow Cooker Applesauce:
- 2 gala apples, chopped
- 1.5 cups apple cider
- Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to taste
Put apples in a small slow cooker and add just enough cider to cover. Add spices if desired. Cook for 4-6 hours or until apples are soft and tender.
