Crockpot Applesauce

Applesauce

Not the most appealing picture, but definitely tasty!  This smelled heavenly when waking up the next morning after having it sit in the crockpot all night. Our son was very pleasantly surprised with the smells wafting out of the kitchen when he came out of his bedroom. In fact, it makes me want to make some right now so that I can surprise him tomorrow morning. Hmmmm, just a few ingredients, will I have enough? Enjoy!

8 medium apples (use a variety)
1 strip of lemon peel
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 inch cinnamon stick
5 teaspoons light brown sugar or agave (to taste – might not need all)

Peel, core, and slice apples. Place them in the slow cooker. Add the cinnamon stick, lemon peel, and brown sugar.

Cook on low about 6 hours or overnight. Stir apples occasionally. Remove cinnamon stick. If you want chunky applesauce, stir and serve. If you want smooth applesauce, blend until smooth.

Makes about 3 cups
