Grown-up Applesauce

Apples, cinnamon and sugar, what's not to love? Delicious homemade applesauce that makes your whole home smell wonderful. It is so simple I'm tempted to make it every week.

20 granny smith apples peeled and cored. Bradley cored them all for me. So helpful.

Put one cup of water in your crockpot with your sliced apples. Then add cinnamon and sugar. If you must measure about 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. I put a lot more cinnamon than that. It was delicious! I think it tasted like baked apples.

Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. I did it on low so my apartment would smell like a yankee candle all day. I'm not going to lie I had a few slices of apples when it was at this stage, basically the best part of apple pie!

And for the final product...

Delicious applesauce for all ages (not just for kids, which is what Bradley thinks). A little darker than store bought...a whole lot better! I left it thick, you can put it in a blender to make it thinner, but I like the pieces of apples.

Applesauce is great for breakfast or dessert or a snack. One of my favorite ways of eating applesauce is warmed up and spread on toast and crunch peanut better. mmmm...
