Make It Monday: Crockpot Applesauce Recipe

Ahhhhhh! I love Fall, don't you? Apple picking, hay rides, Halloween, falling leaves, crisp air, and homemade apple sauce. There is something so comforting about a bowl of warm apple sauce (maybe even with a little whip cream on top!) And it is so easy to make! I use a food processor to puree my apples so that I can keep the peel on (we all know that is where the best nutrients are!) and have just a bit of a chunkier apple sauce.

Can you freeze?

Yes, I do freeze apple sauce and it works great as a way to keep it longer.
