This is a easy applesauce recipe to make in your slow cooker with your wild crab apples! You don’t need to peel the apples! Even better there’s no sugar in this as we use maple syrup instead!
Because Fall is the best season and I know you’ll be apple picking soon I wanted to give you my Slow Cooker Wild Crab Applesauce recipe to enjoy! And guess what? You don’t even need to peel the apples! Throw them in the slow cooker and in 3 hours you’ll have delicious (and amazing smelling) applesauce. Enjoy!
Even though this recipe calls for Wild Crab apples, you can use any type of apple you want. I am using Wild Crab apples because I found 4 (!!) apple trees on the land in the last few weeks. It was a happy surprise finding them as now I have my own personal apple orchard!
All you need (besides apples) is maple syrup, cinnamon, water and lemon juice. I bet you have all those ingredients already in your kitchen! Many applesauce recipes call for lots of sugar, but for this one I’m using maple syrup instead which gives it a yummy maple sweet taste.
