How to make Crock Pot Blueberry Applesauce
To make the applesauce, simply peel and chop the apples and combine them in the crock pot with the blueberries, lemon juice and cinnamon! My son helped with the chopping for this recipe with these awesome kid safe knives we love!
Once you have all of your ingredients combined, cook on low for 3-4 hours or until the apples are tender. Next, use an immersion blender to blend the applesauce until smooth. Finally, let cool and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. I prefer to store any homemade applesauce in mason jars which make for easy pouring. Also, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled depending on the size of the crock pot used.
- The blueberries contain pectin which will naturally thicken the applesauce, however if you prefer a thinner applesauce, just add a little water until your desired consistency is achieved.
- The lemon juice helps to keep the apples from turning too brown while they are cooking but it also aids in extending the shelf life.
- Do not store applesauce in the pantry because there are no preservatives.
- This recipe freezes well.
