Pumpkin Applesauce

Check out my giveaway!

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.
