Chunky Slow Cooker Apple Sauce

Anyone else have lots of apples right now? I made THE BEST chunky slow cooker apple sauce this weekend! The secret ingredient was orange juice. 😍😍 I served it for dinner with bread and butter. 😂 Survival mode over here, folks.

Apples For Days

I had a bunch of beat up apples (maybe 8-10) so I chopped them up (no skin), filled my small crockpot, and added 1/4 cup honey, 2 cinnamon sticks, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, and 3 tablespoons or so orange juice.

Sliced Apples Ready For The Slow Cooker

Cook on low for about 4 hours or so and then mash up the apples and stir. If you like it smooth, use an immersion blender.

This made enough extra applesauce that we also served it with a seared pork tenderloin and roasted veggies. Doesn’t pork just go so well with applesauce? I can’t help but think of Bobby Brady…

I apologize if you can’t get this out of your head for the rest of the day…
