Slow Cooker Dessert Applesauce is definitely a sweet delicious dessert treat! I usually try to bring some healthy into my applesauce as a “freeze it and give it” to my kids in the winter. My grandma always made an applesauce similar to this (although she did hers on the stove not the slow cooker). We always ate Grandma’s applesauce with our big family meals and I completely remember eating it on top of vanilla ice cream! YUM! My recipe may be a bit different than Grandma’s – only because I asked her once for her recipe and she laughed and said “there is no recipe.”  🙂

I decided to try making the Dessert Applesauce in the Slow Cooker because, well, why not?  You know that we love our slow cookers at Who Needs a Cape? and this seemed like a great idea to me! As a note, you will need a decent sized slow cooker – like 6 quarts or above. Apples cook down so much that you really need a good 20 apples in there and I don’t think a smaller slow cooker would have room.

The bonus? Your house will smell amazing all day!

    Heather -I had to laugh at Grandma’s comment “there is no recipe” because I too have asked Grandma multiple times for the recipe and was told the same thing. Finally this week I went to her house and helped her make the applesauce because I was sure she must have a “secret ingredient”. Your recipe is pretty close but, of course, Grandma doesn’t measure the sugar or cinnamon she just dumps some in the pot as the apples are cooking and then tastes to see if it is sweet enough. It is delicious!! Aunt Sally

    • Aunt Sally – 🙂 I’ve tried to get it as close as possible…but hers will never be replaced! 🙂 I’m glad you came over – thanks for the support!
