Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. Have you had enough pumpkin recipes yet? I love this time of year. I have tons of apples and lots of pumpkin so naturally, putting them together was going to happen.
I love applesauce. I eat it plain. I love it over vanilla ice cream. It's awesome with vanilla yogurt. I also enjoy it with granola. See. So versatile. So tasty.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe
Adapted from The Novice Chef
3 lbs. apples, cored and chopped
2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Juice of a lemon
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Place chopped apples in the bottom of a slow cooker. Juice the lemon over the apples. In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over apples. Cook on high for 3 - 4 hours or until soft. Mash into chunks or pour into an applesauce into a food processor for thinner consistency. I left the peels on the apples but you can peel them if you'd like.
