Slow-Cooker Applesauce

It’s week 2 of my fall CSA subscription, and I am a combination of overwhelmed and stressed-out.

I debated whether to do a weekly fruit and veg box especially because I shared the last one with a friend, and I was concerned about the quantity.

Going solo I have a surplus of hearty mustard greens, squash and potatoes, and I am struggling to keep up.

Soup is my go-to to use lots of veggies in one recipe.

With a sack of apples, I used the same strategy and made spiced slow cooker applesauce.

I ignored the different varieties by peeling, coring and chopping them all before throwing everything into the crock-pot.

Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves gave the applesauce a very autumnal, chai-like flavor.
