Recipe: RED HOT Slow Cooker Applesauce

One of the simplest and yummiest fall recipes ever today! Homemade crockpot applesauce, with a twist!


Ingredients
Approx. 15 small green apples
1/3 cup of stevia/sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 cup red hot candies
Crock pot
  • Start by cutting your apples from the core. You can use any kind of apples you like. I’ve seen people use red, but I used green apples. They are the best. TIP: The best ones to get are preferably picked from an apple tree you planted as a 6 year old, but I know most people don’t plan that far ahead like me… 
  • You don’t even have to peel them. I didn't. I don’t have an apple peeler/corer. So I just roll with it. 
  • Cut your apples & throw in crock pot.
  • Mix your sugar/sweetener and cinnamon in one container, then sprinkle it over the mound of apples.
  • Pour your ½ cup of water over the apples.
  • Cook on low for about 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. 
  • Stir about halfway through and do some mushing with a potato masher. Cook some more.
  • When it’s about finished the apples will be brownish and smell amazing, dump in your red hot candies. Stir until melted and blended. If you like a little extra pizzaz add a whole cup!
Serve. I like mine warm, but you can cool yours in the fridge and even freeze it if you like.  It turned out better than I thought. Easy, delicious. 
Step 1, clean and cut apples.

Step 2, add ingredients then slow cook!

After 7 hours of slow cookin'...Ready for the red hots!
Yum, there you have it. 

Adam complained that I should have made him and his friend a pie... Men.

Have you ever made homemade applesauce?
Did your mom used to put red hots in your applesauce as a kid?
