I’ve spent a lot of my life living in the desert. Austrialia, Texas and Arizona are few of my stomping grounds growing up and low and behold, my lovely rain soaked Portland has turned into a desert this summer. It has been two weeks of un ending 90+ degree weather. Part ot me is in heaven because of the sunshine and part of me is in hell because we don’t have air conditioning.
It was seriously hard thinking of what to make and this recipe is part accident and part motherly invetion. I cooked the apples WAY too long but after I had my first taste, I was like, why throw out something good because it just doens’t look the part?
I ate this warm with vanilla ice cream and trust me, it was everything amazing.
Slow Cooker Apple Pie Applesauce
In a small pot over medium heat, add the butter lemon juice, evoporated cane juice, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract and sea salt.
Whisk together as the butter melts. When the butter is melted, remove from the stove top.
Place the apples in your slow cooker and pour the mixture over the top. With a spoon mix the apple and sauce together until all the apples are coated.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
