SECRET RECIPE CLUB
Pink Pearl Applesauce
Today is Group B: Secret Recipe Club reveal. And I am the fearless-host of Group B and YES I LOVE IT!!! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I hope that we see lots of ideas that we can use for this upcoming feast, I made this scrumptious applesauce that is PERFECT for Thanksgiving. If you haven't heard of the Secret Recipe Club or you'd like more information click on over and read all about it, there may be a little waiting list, but feel free to sign up anyway.
When I found out who my assigned blog was, I clicked right on over. (I don't assign the blogs, so my new blog each month is still a secret to me). I was assigned Fifteen Spatulas and I just have to say her blog is A-MAZ-ING and everything, I mean everything looks so SCRUMPTIOUS! You should see all the recipes I've pinned on Pinterest, I hope to make ALL OF THEM, sooner rather then later. But first, it will be the Caprese Pasta Salad, followed by Ooey Gooey Rocky Road Cookies. (maybe even both the same night)
The recipe that made the post today is Pink Lady Applesauce (I had a handful of Pink Pearl apples from apple picking and I knew they would make great applesauce)! This recipe was perfect. I changed the recipe from Pink Lady to Pink Pearl and from stove-top to crock-pot plus took out the cardamon (only because I didn't have any on hand). This is the second applesauce crock-pot recipe I've made (click here to see the first) and I like BOTH! Yes, both of them are equally delicious and both of them are very different too. One sweet, one more tart. One cinnamon'y and one not so much! So, you can bet in the near future I will be making BOTH of my applesauce crock-pot recipes I've discovered.
|Yes, Pink Pearl Apples REALLY are pink inside (see photo)! This apple cutter makes cutting all these apples so easy!|
And yes you are seeing a BAG in my crock-pot, they sell them at Target or local grocery store and I LOVE THEM!

They go great in the kids lunches frozen and then by lunch
time they are ready to eat cold Homemade Applesauce
6 or more Pink Pearl Apples
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
dash of ginger
dash of cloves
Peel your apples, core them, and cut them in into small chunks. I love using my slicer and then just peeling them. Place the apple chunks into crock-pot with the water, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. When the apples are soft enough to mash, mash to your liking. Chunky or Silky Smooth. That's it! Transfer to individual servings or to a big bowl and cool in the refrigerator.
