No-Sugar Applesauce the EASY Way

Easy Homemade Applesauce -

Easy Homemade Applesauce -

When the chilly, blustery days of fall roll around, it is super satisfying to reach into the pantry and pull out some comfort food that was created months earlier.

What fills that craving for me?

Homemade applesauce with cinnamon, allspice and a whole lot of flavor.

And what makes that even more rewarding, is knowing how easy it was to make!

Applesauce is a great way to preserve large batches of apples quickly – especially if your use a slow cooker.

You can have delicious applesauce with very little effort. In fact, you make it while you sleep!

Then you can freeze it or water bath can it to enjoy later when the apple season is long gone.
