Easy to find at the grocery store? Apple sauce. Not easy? Apple and pear, together. Enter your slow cooker, a simple list of ingredients, and a hands-off method for an easy and delicious recipe. When you combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker, it might not seem like enough water, but due to the way a slow cooker works, the steam from the cooked apples and pears will mix in to make sure it’s all good and saucy. Two cooking tips: make sure to remove the seeds before cooking the apples and pears, and cool the apple sauce completely before refrigerating.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place all ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker, stirring just to combine. Cover and cook on LOW until apples and pears are tender, about 4 hours.

Step 2

Remove and discard vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.

Step 3

Pulse mixture in a food processor or blender, or mash in a bowl with a potato masher, to desired consistency.
