Fill the crock nearly to the top.  Some may suggest a certain amount of water, as long as you have enough veggies the flavor will be there.  The less water the stronger the broth.

After it’s cooked for 8 hours it made the entire house smell amazing!

We strained it and placed it into a jug with the date.  You can also freeze it.  Refrigerated this broth will last about 2-3 weeks.

So easy a caveman could do it! Crockpot apple sauce is super simple to make and so yummy that it will have you coming back for more!
Ingredients
  • 2-3lbs of apples (6-8), peeled and cut into small cubes (do not include the core)
  • 1 cup of Simply Apple (or pure apple juice)
  • 1 tbsp of Stevia (calorie free)
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon or a stick of cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients (make sure to peel the apples)
  2. Cook on high for around 4 hours on low.
  3. Remove the apples and place into a bowl, remember to leave the excess liquid in the crockpot, the apples will have absorbed much of the liquid
  4. Remove the cinnamon stick
  5. Blend the apples with a hand blender until they are smooth.
  6. Eat warm or cool!

We used about 8 small apples and Stevia (no calories), simple apple and a cinnamon stick.  If you don’t have a cinnamon stick, use 1 tsp of ground cinnamon.

Make sure to peel the apples so they have absolutely no skins.  I added the cinnamon stick for taste!
