The BEST All-Natural Crock Pot Applesauce!

If you're like me, you have tons of great apples from a fun day of apple picking...BUT...the thought of making applesauce for hours at a time is overwhelming. However, I recently found that making applesauce is way too EASY!
If you don't have time to sit around and watch batches of apples boil, I have your solution! Here's a quick recipe for crock pot applesauce!
  And the best part is it's all natural! :-)
You will need:

-10 medium apples (I use Macintosh as I like it mushy, Empire is slightly chunkier)
-1/4 cup of water
-crock pot 
-paring knife
OPTIONAL: 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

The simple steps:
-First, peel apples with paring knife.
-Then core the apples by slicing them four times in a square around the core.
-Now dice the apples into about 1/2 inch cubes.

-Place the apples in the crock pot with 1/4 cup of water. (And optional cinnamon)
-Turn the crockpot to high and stir occasionally for 3 1/2 hours. 
The apples will soften and break up on their own. You can use a potato masher if you want your apples even smaller!
This is the best way for the busy mom or dad to save money on a great snack or side for your family meal!  Don't forget to PIN ME so you won't forget me next fall! :)
