Applesauce? Does it have many fans? After you read this post, I’m sure it will have many more. Because I am a recent one; of homemade applesauce that is.

I never imagined the day that I would be making applesauce. As a child, I absolutely hated everything that had warm or cooked apple in it. Apple pie, apple tart, never mind applesauce; it just didn’t appeal to me.

A few months back I followed a cake recipe that required some applesauce and the closest I got to a good and healthy applesauce was one that contained sugar and other preservatives. I try to stay away from processed sugar as much as I can. So, the challenge was on to try my hand at some homemade applesauce because that cake was darn good! And boy oh boy am I glad I took this challenge upon myself. This applesauce is SO easy to make and SO yummy AND has no added sugar! I had to stop myself from finishing the jar the same night I made my first pot. After you give this sauce a try, I don’t think you would consider buying apple sauce from the store again.

All you need for this wonderful apple sauce is a slow cooker, 8 gorgeous apples (I LOVE and used Crispps Pink also known as Pink Lady) and some apple cider vinegar. That’s it! Can you believe it? Initially I thought I would need a drop of honey as well (because I am obviously a honey ambassador) but after tasting the sauce for the first time, there was no need for any sweetener as the apples are naturally sweet.
