Applesauce in the Crockpot
Peel, core and slice apples. I filled my crockpot to the top. For every 4 apples add:
1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon brown sugar (I used 1/2 T brown sugar, 1/2 T Splenda)
Combine in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 4 - 6 hours. When the apples are soft, use a potato masher or fork to mash them. Voila! Applesauce!
It is delicious warm or cold. I placed mine in individual containers and froze about half of them. What a treat!
