Slow Cooker Pumpkin Applesauce

Who knew the yummiest seasonal applesauce would be so easy to make?

Ingredients

  • 6 large Honeycrisp apples, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup organic pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Steps

  1. Place the apples, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, maple syrup, and sea salt into the bowl of a large slow cooker and toss to coat.
  2. Cook for 6-7 hours on Low or 4-5 hours on High, until the apples are reduced to a thick, soupy consistency. Mash with a spoon or a potato masher until mostly smooth.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients (vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, and lemon juice) and stir until well combined.
  4. Cover and cook 20 minutes to heat through.
