Slow Cooker Vanilla Maple Applesauce

10-12 large apples, cored and sliced into quarters

1 cup apple cider

juice of 1/2 large lemon

1 vanilla bean

1 Tbsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

2 star anise

1/2 - 3/4 cup pure maple syrup

Place all of the apples in a slow cooker. Pour apple cider over the top and toss in a vanilla bean (cut in half), cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise. Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove the star anise pods and vanilla beans from the apples and discard. Pour the contents of the bowl into a large mixing bowl and add 1/2-3/4 cup maple syrup. (More or less depending on how sweet you like your applesauce) Using an immersion blender or food processor, pulse the applesauce to you desired consistency. I like mine a bit chunky. Store in freezer safe containers for future meals! Great for baby food!
