Slow cooker applesauce is a great way to use up all those extra apples you snagged on sale! Simply toss everything in your slow cooker and stir occasionally – it's that easy! I've been known to throw everything into the crockpot right before bed, stir, and stir again in the morning. It's great alone, with a little whipped topping, or as an Applesauce Sundae!
