On my Whole30 journey, I tried a Tangy BBQ Sauce recipe from The Whole30 Cookbook that was completely sweetened with a sweet potato. It was amazing and it got my wheels turning. I was cooking pork chops that night and wanted applesauce on the side. So, I threw some ingredients in a slow cooker, and boom ~ naturally sweetened slow cooker applesauce was created!
- 8-9 apples, peeled and diced (I like using several varieties)
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- juice from 1 orange
- pinch or two of sea salt
- Place ingredients in a slow cooker on high heat for approximately 5 hours. Using an immersion blender, blend to desired consistency.
- Serve the applesauce hot or cold.
