Yummy-Yum-Yum Applesauc-ium

My daughter tried it and decided to name it. Having her a part of the recipe, or recipe naming process, is always fun! (If she had her way more sugar would have been used in the recipe.)

  • Roughly 3 pounds of Red Delicious Apples
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ginger
  • 2 tablespoon of sugar 
  • Optional: add a 1 cup of raisins once done and top with chopped walnuts as seen in picture above.
  1. Combine dry ingredients in small bowl.
  2. Pour water and lemon juice in slow cooker, stir
  3. Peeled, core, and cut up apples then place in slow cooker, stir
  4. Sprinkle dry ingredients over apples and gently stir
  5. Cook on high for 3 hours, gently stirring occasionally. 
  6. Switch to low for another 1 hour
  7. Carefully use a potato masher, or other device, to break up the apples to desire consistency. It will be very hot. I choose to keep it "chunky" by not mashing as much. 
  8. Optional: Once done, add in raisins and top with walnuts and sprinkle extra sugar if needed. 

Bring On The Yarn!!

As summer comes to a close where I live, the creativity bug is hitting me. Cooler weather means yarn will be my friend, not my enemy, as I settle in for nights in my home to create new, hopefully simple, projects over the next few months. I know I have apologized for the lack of patterns and videos over the summer but honestly, I try not to "force" the creativity out, instead allowing it to flow naturally.

This summer brought about changes as my daughter and I moved to a new place. With more room compared to where we had lived, I can already sense projects wanting to emerge and, now that all my yarn is in one location along with my looms and other tools of the trade, I will be able to really sink my teeth into making Simply Intertwined blossom when my daughter starts school soon.

I didn't realize I had this much! I'm thankful for the storage area.
I have found a couple projects that need finishing since we moved. I need to get my butt in gear! I might be tweaking my blog a little, as you might have noticed with the new header, and fixing any errors as well. If you have a project you want me to try create please contact me through the Simply Intertwined Facebook Page and I will add it to my list. Also, if you have asked me about something before please remind me to I can make sure it was put on my "to do" list. 

I enjoy my job as a teacher on Youtube and the interactions I have had with everyone. I will do my best to continue doing what I love as I hope you continue to watch. Now excuse me while I go have a serious conversation with my yarn to make sure it behaves this fall. 

Have a great day!!
