Want to usher in the fall season with the yummy scent of baking apples with cinnamon and vanilla? If so, we have the right recipe for you! This Crockpot Cinnamon Vanilla Applesauce is a much try during the fall (really any time of the year!).
The smell is so inviting and cozy, that it makes fall time one of my most favorite times of the year. The changing colors of leaves, the cool crisp air, picking apples from an orchard, drinking warm cider, and cozying up at night.
Using the crockpot allows the apples, cinnamon, and vanilla to create a warm and cozy atmosphere in your home. It makes everything smell so delightful! The crockpot also allows for quick and easy cooking after preparation. You can forget about it, but not really with those scents creating a yummy environment!
The applesauce can be stored for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge. Since it has no preservatives you don’t want to keep it too long as it will mold. You can also freeze this and heat it up if you would like for it to last longer.
- Peel apples and cut into quarters (core the apples as well). Place in crock pot.
- Add all remaining ingredients and stir lightly (just enough to mix ingredients).
- Cook on low for 2 hrs.
- Raise the temperature and cook on high for 1.5 hrs.
- Stir, slightly mashing any remaining apple chunks.
