Fall is the season of visiting orchards and pumpkin patches. Before winter officially arrives, my family and I visited one of our favorites, Linvilla Orchard.

Of course we left with pounds of apples, pumpkins, apple pie, and apple cider donuts (shhh). Honestly, I knew I couldn’t eat all of these apples, so I started making my favorite apple recipes. We made apple muffins, apple crisp, and a new recipe… applesauce! And since I’m always about getting more bang for your bite, there’s a secret ingredient to make it more fall-appropriate. One more bonus, this is a crockpot recipe, so set it, forget it, and your house will smell amazing!!

Homemade Fall Applesauce

Ingredients
8 Apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
1 c Pumpkin Puree (unsweetened)
1/2 c Sugar
1/4 c Brown sugar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 c Water

Directions
Chop some apples into smaller chunks, and leave some as slices.

Place all ingredients in a crockpot, stir. Cook on high for 3 hrs, or low for 6.

As the apples soften, mash them or use an immersion blender to get applesauce to desired consistency. Serve with a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top, enjoy!!

Some other variations could include subbing the pumpkin for blueberries, or strawberries, cranberries…
