Easy Slow Cooker Applesauce

1 cup unfiltered apple juice or cider

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

6-7 pounds apples, variety of sweet and tart

1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

Pour apple juice/cider and lemon juice into slow cooker. Peel, core, and slice apples into 6-8 wedges each. Place apples in slow cooker, stirring to combine with the juice. 

Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Stir once or twice if desired, quickly replacing the lid. 

After 4 hours, the apples should be soft and falling apart when stirred. Turn off slow cooker. Stir in vanilla bean paste. Use an immersion blender* to puree the applesauce. [NOTE: I like it best super smooth, but you can puree as much or as little as you like.]

*Alternatively, carefully scoop the applesauce into a blender and process in batches.

Serve warm or cold. Once cooled, spoon into jars or covered containers and refrigerate. Will keep in the fridge for 10-14 days.
