Solar Cooker Applesauce

Solar oven applesauce recipe from the Solavore blog

This is a kid friendly set-it-and-forget-it recipe. Let your apples cook all day and you'll have a fantastic fresh tasting snack or a side dish to serve with pork chops.


6 large apples, any variety (approximately 3 pounds)
2 cinnamon sticks, optional
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt


Peel the apples with the vegetable peeler, then cut them into quarters and slice out the cores. Roughly chop apples into 1- to 2-inch pieces, depending on how chunky you prefer your applesauce.

Combine all ingredients in your Graniteware pot. Place the covered pot in your preheated Solavore Sport.

You can let this slow cook all day long, 6 hours minimum, without reflectors.

The apples are ready when they can be easily mashed with a fork. Ours became applesauce with just a few gentle stirs.
