Fall is a very tenuous season here in the desert. Mostly it feels like an extension of summer. Please note we were still in the triple digits even two weeks ago, and high 90s all last week. This is the first week since, oh, February probably, where we’ve had a day that didn’t even make it into the 80s. Halleluia!!!
So I can’t let what little fall we actually have slip by without making applesauce. I love this recipe. It’s a complete no-brainer: toss it in the crockpot and let it go. The house smells amazing while the apples stew and I can go about my day without a care in the world. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration but you know what I mean. Enjoy!
- 8 apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I used a combination of Gala and Fuji, but use what you like)
- 1/2 c water
- 1/4 c packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
