Recipe: Slow Cooker Applesauce

Oh my, this applesauce is SO good and the best part is, there's no sugar added! According to the website where I got this recipe, My Whole Food Life, "Slow cooking the apples allows for the natural sugars to come out. Plus, adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla makes the dish seem sweet without having to add any sugar."

10 apples peeled, cored and cubed
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 heaping tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup water

Throw everything in the slow cooker. Cook on high for the first hour, stirring occasionally. Then turn to low and cook for another 6 hours or so. The longer you cook it, the better. We like ours chunky but if you like it smoother you can blend it at the end. That’s it, and your house will smell amazing too!
