When Applesauce is this easy, why would you buy it?
- 12 cups pared, cored apples. Thinly sliced or chopped into chunks.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 1 TBS lemon juice
- freshly ground nutmeg (optional)
Put apples, cinnamon and sugar in crock pot.
Stir in water, lemon juice and nutmeg
Cook low: 5-7 hours
Cook high: 2.5-3.5 hours
Stir or mash, depending on the consistency you like.
Note: You really don’t need to cut the apples up much. By the time they
are done cooking, they practically disintegrate. So don’t waste time cutting
them up small. Besides, it is nice to have some “chunks” in there.
