Slow cooker applesauce

Applesauce is one of those recipes you don’t realize the ease of until you try it. And when you toss it all in the slow cooker, it gets even easier. The most time-consuming part is preparing the apples, but if you have one of these handy-dandy gadgets, even that part is easy! I think homemade applesauce gets better after a day or two in the fridge. Also, applesauce freezes well, so go ahead and double the recipe.

Slow cooker applesauce

6 large Honeycrisp apples, peeled/cored/chopped
¼ cup white sugar
2 TBSP water
½ tsp cinnamon

As you are peeling and chopping your apples, toss the pieces lightly in lemon juice to keep them from browning.

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker, cook on high for 4-5 hours. Mash with a masher. Tweak seasonings to taste.
