Crock Pot Applesauce

Last weekend I took my girls apple picking at a local you-pick farm. The have a blast running around an orchard. We picked about 10 pounds of apples and I'm glad that I decided to make the applesauce when I did because the apples were almost gone. It took about 5 lbs to make the applesauce.


To make the applesauce you will need:

Enough apples to fill the crockpot 3/4 the way up
1/2 cup water or cider (I used all-natural applesauce because that's what I had on hand)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar (I chose to omit the sugar)

Here's how it goes. Peel, core and cut the apple pieces into chunks. I used both golden delicious and red delicious apples. Add the additional ingredients and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low. I went with high so it would be ready by dinner. Once it is done take a potato masher and mush it into applesauce. Once it cools them store it in the fridge for up to an hour (if it lasts that long).
