Crock-Pot Cinnamon Applesauce

IT'S APPLE SEASON, Y'ALL. While it's still kind of hot here in New England (what?!), the apple orchards around town are full with gorgeous, ripe apples. What better way to celebrate the beginning of fall than with delicious homemade applesauce? This is my go-to applesauce recipe because all you have to do is "set it and forget it" à la Ron Popeil. Throw all the ingredients in your Crock-Pot and go about your day. You'll come home to a wonderfully scented kitchen and big batch of applesauce.

Special equipment needed: 5 qt (or larger) Crock-Pot
Ingredients:

    • I used Gala
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Directions:
Peel, core, and slice your apples

Cover and cook on low for 4 hours

Once the apples are soft, use a spoon or fork and mash them until you get the consistency you desire. I like a slightly chunky applesauce so I mash it a little less. Funnel the applesauce into whatever jars you'd like and let cool in the refrigerator before digging in! (because it will be hot and it will burn your mouth when you try to gobble it up)
