Our baby girl will be here in a little over one month and I could not be more excited about it! I know we have a while until we start giving her solid foods, but I am determined to make all of her first foods from scratch, just like I did for Bradley. I really think that's part of the reason why he has such an amazing appetite today! Testing out this slow cooker applesauce was a perfect decision because I realized how easy it is (and how convenient it will be once a newborn is around!) and how much Bradley loves it. Definitely saving this one to use all the time. Enjoy!
Makes 3-4 cups applesauce, depending on the size of your apples
- 7 medium-large apples, peeled, cored and finely diced
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Cover and cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally.
Once tender, mash with a potato masher (or add to a blender/blend with an immersion blender if you want an extra-smooth consistency). Taste and add more cinnamon, as desired.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
