Crockin' Up Some Homemade Applesauce!

I haven't written on here in a long time so it's about time for a new post.  How about a crockpot recipe? It's super easy and it doesn't take too long to prepare at all.  Here we go!

Crock-pot Homemade Applesauce:
6 apples--cored, peeled and cut {I used Braeburn apples because they were on sale)
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of cinnamon--depending on how much cinnamon you want in it
1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Pictured above are the 6 braeburn apples I used

1.  Core, peel and cut all of the apples.  Be careful on this step because it can get slippery with the apple juice!  You can grip the apple pieces with a paper towel if you want to keep the slice in place while you peel it.  When peeling, it doesn't have to be perfect so keep that in mind.
2.  Once the first step is all done put the cut pieces in the crock-pot and make sure it's on.
3.  In a bowl, combine the water, vanilla extract, sugar and cinnamon.  Mix the mixture so the sugar is dissolved.
4.  Pour the mixture evenly over the apple pieces in the crock-pot.  The picture to the left is of the mixture all over the apples.

5.  Finally, leave them in the crock-pot for about 4 hours or until they are soft enough to mash and blend.
6.  At the end of the 4 hours,  mix and mash to your desired texture!  For smoother applesauce mix with a hand mixer.  ENJOY!!

**I got this recipe from frugalgirls.com.  It's also on my Pinterest board entitled FOOD.
