I am a very lazy cook, and I have a few questions for you.
Why peel your apples for applesauce? That seems like a lot of work. Also, isn’t there fiber in the peels? That’s how I justify my laziness.
Why add sugar to applesauce? I mean, that’s one more step. Also, sugar is killing us. Hasn’t the Internet told you that lately?
Why cook applesauce on the stove? You could forget about it and burn your house down. That is some serious bad news right there.
Core some apples and pack them into your slow cooker.
Turn your slow cooker on low and let it hang out until some point in the future when you remember it’s still on.
Blend up your cooked apples.
You could add a tiny bit of water. Over-achiever. I add cinnamon, because if I do this at night, I can let the slow-cooker-plus-apples-and-cinnamon make my house in the morning smell like I’ve been baking apple pies all night. When in reality I’ve been sleeping. It’s a nice trick I like to play on myself.
Once I tried wrapping mulling spices in cheese cloth and adding that to the apples. Then I forgot about the spices and accidentally blended up that fragrant cheese-cloth ball. My blender did not like it. So that’s my warning against taking unnecessary extra steps.
I did once leave the slow cooker running with the apples in it for 24 hours. The sauce was more of an apple butter with nice caramel notes. So that’s my endorsement for extreme laziness.
Let me know how it goes. Or if you have other apple recipes that are one step above complete entropy.
