Homemade Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce

Remember how I told you my client brought me a zillion fresh apples? Well, I still have a TON. I want to be sure to put them all to good use, so I decided to make some fresh homemade applesauce. The recipe comes from skinnytaste.com you can view the original recipe HERE. I made some slight adaptations.

First, take 8 medium apples and peel them. I just used a vegetable peeler.
 Next, core them and slice them.
 Throw the slices in the crock pot.
 Add to that 1 tsp of lemon juice, 5 tsp of brown sugar, and 1 tsp of cinnamon and cook on low for 6-8 hours until the apples turn to applesauce! 
 I don't even really love applesauce, and this stuff is so good!
This recipe makes 3 cups of applesauce. A great and healthy dessert or side dish for your family. Added bonus? It makes your house smell absolutely amazing. I plan on throwing this in some of my healthy recipes as well! Remember that applesauce can be used in place of butter or oil, and it takes out a ton of the fat and calories. It makes it really moist as well.

Do you ever cook with applesauce? Have you ever made your own fresh applesauce? You should try it. It is so incredibly easy and when you make it at home you get rid of all the extra added gunk!

P.S. I have to say thanks to my darling Janae!! She came and brought me a gift certificate to my favorite restaurant The Pizza Factory. Oh I just love her! Thanks girlie!! xoxoxo

Oh yum! I made my own applesauce for the first time this fall, it was so good! I love using applesauce in place of oil, especially in pancakes--so good!
