How to Make Applesauce

Our favorite apple orchard is open and we've already paid a visit.  Last week we made our first (of many) batches of applesauce.  I like to use MacIntosh - I've learned through trial and trial that they seem to make the appley-est tasting sauce.  Here's our pictorial of how to make Chunky Applesauce.  It's so easy, even my kids can do it!

 1.  Wash 8-10 apples
2. Peel, core, and slice them.  Drop them into the crockpot.
 3. Mix in 1/2-1 C. Sugar, 1 C. water, 1 tsp. cinnamon.
 And mix again.

 4. Cook on low 6-8 hours.  Smash with a potato masher.  Be careful, it's hot!
 5. Cool and enjoy!

I never thought of doing applesauce in the crock pot! Good idea, Kim!
