Crockpot Applesauce recipe

Last week, after the kids spent a few hours climbing trees at the beach,
I was left with a ton of apples.

I decided to try making applesauce in the crockpot and had great success.
It was so easy, and I would love to share with you how I did it.

I started by peeling the skin off of the apples.
I cored them and cut them in to small chunks.
I filled the crockpot about 3/4 full with cut apples.

I poured 3/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp of cinnamon
and a dash of vanilla
over the apples

mix it all together and cook the apples on low for 5-8 hours.
Once the apples are cooked, you can keep it chunky and do nothing
or you can let the apples cool and put them in the food processor to blend the applesauce a little smoother.

That's it!
You can freeze your applesauce or eat it right away.
It got the kids stamp of approval as well being labeled 
''the best applesauce ever!"

What do you like to do with the apples that are in abundance right now?

Looks good! I love home made applesauce. I make my apple butter in a crock pot, too. Apples, sugar, touch of vinegar, and maybe some cinnamon; let it cook for 10+ hours. Yum! Last time I think I cooked it for almost 24 hours cause I wanted to make it more caramelized and use less sugar. I process it in a canner and give it as gifts with cookies at Christmas.

I have a bunch of apples falling to the ground in my backyard. I will have to give this a shot.
