Do you ever look at something in the grocery store or restaurant and think to yourself, I can do that. The food squeeze packets are taking over. Seriously in the next year or so there will be steak, pizza and burger packets that you can eat by a squeeze packet. I can’t hate on these packets because we currently have some go-go squeeze applesauce in the cupboard at the moment.
My daughter loves her applesauce. In fact she would eat it all day long if we allowed her too. A couple weeks ago I went to Michigan to check out some apple orchards and I came home with some great honey crisp apples. We had run out of applesauce while I was away so that got me to thinking about making my own. You can even buy the empty squeeze packets now and stuff them with your own concoctions.
Slow cooker applesauce was relatively easy and it’s nice to have it on hand for a snack, breakfast or a side dish. Next time I would like to include some other fruits for a different mixture and taste. Have a friend who loves applesauce or a parent who would love some extra food for baby snack time? This applesauce would be perfect as a gift. All you have to do is tie a little piece of string around the top along with a card that says homemade applesauce and voila.
Add all ingredients to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours; stir occasionally.
Place the mixture in a blender or food processor and blend until you get a smooth consistency. Pour into glass jars or an air-tight container.
