Slow Cooker Applesauce – Slow Cooking Perfected

You will get about eighteen servings from a single batch of this sauce. We assume that one serving is about eight tablespoons, so you may be able to serve more people if you don’t need as much. I think it’s great if I’m cooking for a large number of people and need a lot of applesauce.
Like apple butter or tasty crispy apple, this dish is a great way to use some apples if you have too many. You can store this sauce in the refrigerator for about five days, or you can freeze and reheat it when needed.
