Applesauce Ritual

It’s our ritual every morning for me to crush up BG’s daily vitamin and mix it in some applesauce for her. Yesterday, I decided to try my hand at some homemade applesauce in my crockpot, which was really easy to make (I find most things are easy to make in a crockpot!)

Here’s what you’ll need:

6-7 apples, cored, peeled and cut into small chunks
about 12 oz. of sweet cider (I used Blossoms sweet cider from Tops)
3 tbsp. of sugar
generous amount of cinnamon
not so generous amount of Allspice

Mix ingredients into crockpot. While I am a big fan of cinnamon and generous with it, you don’t want to put too much Allspice-it is quite powerful of a spice and you don’t want to overpower the taste of the apples. I did just a couple sprinkles of it. Cook on low heat for 8 hours and cool. BAM! Applesauce! Nutritious, delicious and animal free!
