Which apples are best for applesauce?
All apples are fair game when it comes to applesauce. I usually just get whatever is on sale that week. But if you choose a more tart apple like Granny Smith you will have to add more sugar in the end according to taste.
How to make slow cooker applesauce:
First peel, core, and cut your apples into quarters. Toss them into the slow cooker. Add the water and lemon juice and sprinkle the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg over the apples and give them a good stir. Cook apples on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Use a potato masher or fork to break up the chunks. Now enjoy a nice warm bowl of applesauce.
