Easy Homemade Crockpot Applesauce Recipe

Easy Homemade Crockpot Applesauce Recipe

My huge stash of apples is gone and I'm sad. I miss them. I miss using my awesome new apple peeler. Have I mentioned how I came about a large stash of apples? This is going to sound made up, but I promise it's true. My friend Monica can vouch for me because she is the one who gave me access to 500 apple trees that have barely been touched.

Fruit and Granola Parfaits Recipe

Do you ever take a series of photos of a particular food and forget that you took them? Only to find them, weeks later, screaming out to you from Lightroom? That's exactly what I did to these parfaits. And I feel terrible because they were delicious. I hope they can find it in their crunchy, creamy, fruity hearts to forgive me.

I had made this delicious granola as one of my challenge recipes, and knew that I wanted to throw it together with some other ingredients to create some sort of parfait. I pondered these parfaits in my sleep. I do that every so often. Ponder food in my sleep. 

Here's what I did.

I purchased two of those convenient little 6-oz. containers of Greek yogurt and mixed about a tablespoon of honey in each container.

I put the yogurt-honey mixtures into the bottoms of two separate tall glasses. 

I put a few spoonfuls of granola on top of the yogurt.

For the top layer of one parfait, I mixed together:

1 kiwi fruit, chopped

1/2 of a mango, chopped 

1 pineapple slice, chopped

For the top layer of the other parfait, I mixed together:

4 strawberries, sliced

1/4 cup of blueberries

1/4 cup of raspberries 

Easy, delicious breakfast served! Just like that.
