Talk about simple AND impressive. I love this easy brunch recipe. It takes only five minutes of work and adds so much to oatmeal, pork chops, a Thanksgiving dinner, oh, oh! and ice cream!! OOoohoohooo! Excuse me for a minute.
Okay, I’m back. Yes, definitely tops ice cream well.
Most any type of apple can be used for applesauce. I used Braeburn this time; Pink Lady last time. Equally yummy. Or you can try a mix of apples to find your perfect flavor combination.
And lookie, lookie! I finally peeled an apple in one strip without it breaking! Woo hoo!
Peel and core four apples and cut each apple into four pieces.
Put all ingredients in a slow cooker — apples, ¼ cup packed brown sugar (or 3 tablespoons granulated sugar), ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg, and ¼ cup water. (You may want to add less sugar, but don’t ask me to.)
Cover slow cooker with lid and cook on high until tender, about an hour and a half.
Use a potato masher or whisk for chunky applesauce or puree for a smoother texture.
Mmm MMM! Enjoy.
