Crock Pot Apple and Pear Sauce
  • 5 to 6 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 4 to 6 pears, peeled and sliced
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves (optional)
  • ¼ cup water or apple juice (I also use apple and pear juice)
  1. Place the peeled and sliced apples and pears in the crock pot.
  2. Sprinkle with the sugar and spices.
  3. Pour the water or juice over top.
  4. Stir lightly and cover.
  5. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours, stirring once or twice.
  6. If you like your Apple and Pear Sauce very smooth, cool a little before blending with an immersion blender.
  7. If, like me, you like your Apple and Pear Sauce a bit chunkier, simply mash with a potato masher until the desired consistency is reached.
