This week is going by pretty quickly which is nice since that means I’m one day closer to being done with the Whole30! Even though I truly am enjoying it, I’m really looking forward to having a glass of wine soon 🙂 Other than that I’ll probably stick with most of it as I’m feeling amazing and loving all the clean eating!
Anyway, I’ve been doing recaps of my weekly eats on Sundays when I meal plan so if you’re interested in seeing all that I’ve been enjoying you can go here, here or here. Otherwise today I’m going to share a yummy Whole30 approved recipe that is the easiest applesauce I’ve made.
When I say easy I mean, toss them into the crock-pot and 6 hours later your basically done. Not only is it easy but it has no added sweeteners and just 4 ingredients. How great is that!?!
- 3-4 Pears
- 6-7 medium Golden Delicious Apples
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- Core and peel Apples and Pears
- Chop and place into the crock-pot.
- Add cinnamon and cinnamon sticks.
- Cook on low for 6 hours.
- Once cooked, smash with a potato masher or pulse in a blender/food processor.
Told you! So easy! The Hubby has proclaimed this the BEST applesauce he’s ever had and I think The Love Nugget agrees. Every morning he asks for more applesauce!
Luckily we had a huge box of apples we purchased on our trip to Apple Hill and after two batches I’ve still got over half the box left so more of this will be made soon 🙂 It’s great to freeze and if you’ve never canned before applesauce is a great way to start as you don’t have to add any pectin’s or preservatives. I’d give you my steps for canning but I definitely don’t consider myself a pro but there are tons of videos and tutorials all over the web 🙂
We’ve been enjoying this alongside meal and snacks so I’m linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday!
