Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time5 hrs
Total Time5 hrs 20 mins
- 7 apples (about 3-4 pounds, no need to be exact!)
- 1 lb. container strawberries
- ½ cup apple juice or water
- sugar to taste if desired
Peel, core and slice apples and add to the slow cooker. Remove the stems from the strawberries and add to the slow cooker with the apples.
Cover, and cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 8 hours.
Using a whisk stir the apples and strawberries until a sauce forms.
Taste the sauce and decide if you want to add sugar. Add a tablespoon at a time until desired sweetness is reached
Serve and enjoy! Refrigerate leftovers in small containers for up to a week. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in fridge for a day before needed.
I do not recommend adding cinnamon to this, it will cover up the strawberry flavor and the color of the applesauce won't be as pink.
