Potatoes have always been a staple in my house but some dishes can take a long time to prepare. This recipe uses the slow cooker to cook the soup while you are away. Simply place all the ingredients in the slow cooker, set the cook time, and leave the soup to prepare itself.
This recipe takes more time than many of the icebox cookies but the results are worth the effort. The designs are pretty and the cookie is delicious. You’ll need an afternoon to bake these cookies so make an extra batch while you are baking and freeze any leftovers.
This applesauce is good with pork or on its own. Its adds a unique flavor to baking when substituted for eggs or oil. Replace 1 egg with 1/4 cup of applesauce or replace 1/4 of the oil in a recipe with applesauce.
8 cups chopped mixed apples
4 cups fresh cranberries
4 cups apple juice or apple cider
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
Stir ingredients in a large pot over high heat just until mixture begins to boil. Turn down and simmer until thickened and apples begin to breakdown. Stir pot occasionally to prevent bottom from burning.
