Home-Made Applesauce

Ahhh, Fall----the time of year when apples are picked and I get to make apple pies, apple sauce, apple crisp and anything else that calls for apples!   Yesterday, the kids and I met up with my father to go apple picking at McDougal's Orchard.  It was cloudy and started to drizzle near the end of our venture, but we picked quite a bit. 

This morning, my daughter and I decided make Home-made Apple Cinnamon Sauce.  Right now the house smells sooooo good!  This is an easy, simple recipe.

Slow-Cooker Applesauce

Apples--4 medium sized
Brown Sugar--1/4 Cup
Cinnamon--1 tsp, ground
Nutmeg--1 tsp, ground
Water---1/4 Cup

Peel the apples, then cut using an apple corer
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and water in slow-cooker
Add apples, stir, then cover
Turn cooker on high and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
Stir well, breaking up the apples (I used a potatoe masher)
Cover, reduce heat to low and continue cooking for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Check the sauce occassionally and break up or mash to the consistency you want
Let cool and serve warm or store in the fridge to serve cold

Makes about 5 servings
