How to Make Your Own Applesauce

Applesauce is a delicious snack that is also very nutritious.  But so many store bought types contain added sugar and preservatives.  Here is a recipe for home made applesauce that is easy to make, inexpensive, and delicious!

Peel and core a three pound bag of apples (between 8 & 9 apples).

Chop into small pieces and put into a crock pot.

Add 1/2 cups sugar.

Add 2 cups water.

Sprinkle in cinnamon (if you would like).

It will look like this:

Cook in the crock pot for 4-6 hours.  It will look similar to this:

Mash the apples with a potato masher or meat tenderizer.

Scoop out any excess water to create the consistency you like.

Add sugar or cinnamon to taste.

Put the final product in a jar and refrigerate!
