Simple, Homemade Apple Sauce (In the Slow Cooker)

My Issie baby loves apple sauce. 

I would venture to say it's his favorite solid. Well that and peas, carrots, yogurt and sweet potatoes. Okay, so he likes ALL the solids. But he really loves apple sauce. 

Since I make (most) of his baby food I figured I should go ahead and learn to make apple sauce. And why not use my slow cooker while I was at it. 

It was so easy, I don't think I will ever go back to traditional apple sauce. 

What you'll need:

3 pounds peeled apples

1/2 cup water

And that's it!

Step 1, peel the apples

Step 2, add them to your slow cooker with 1/2 cup water. 

Turn the slow cooker on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours. 


They will turn brown and become soft. 

You can then mash them with a fork for chunky apple sauce. 

- OR - 

Add them to your blender for a smooth apple sauce. 

What about you? Do you make baby food at home?
