Slow Cooker Apples

Here’s an easy recipe for all those apples during harvest time – it’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing.  But I’ll tell you anyway since it’s a great idea. 🙂

I’d cut up some apples the other day but had some other things to do besides keeping an eye on a pot simmering. Three bags of organic juicing apples that weren’t too great for eating had to have a purpose before they weren’t useful for anything.

So the apples all went into my slow cooker for the afternoon, skin and all, and covered with water.  When they came out about 4 hours later I had the most beautifully stewed apples.  [By the way, leaving the skins on provides some dietary fibre].

I blended them up in batches, keep some in the fridge, and the rest has gone in the freezer.

We hung onto the leftover water and the kids had warm apple ‘tea’.  It was so sweet, no added sweetener needed.slow cooker apples 4

If you don’t have a high speed blender, you might be want to peel the apples first as they may not blend up completely.

It’s got me thinking what else I can use my slow cooker for… hmmm… watch this space. 🙂

** If you’re in the intro stages of the GAPS Diet, make sure you peel the apples.
