Crock Pot Applesauce

I think I have finally developed a schedule that I am happy with and can manage! GO ME! You know what that means?  Yeah, more posts. I am so in Autumn mode- pumpkins, leaves, football, and APPLES. When I was younger, my neighbor had brought over a tupperware full of home made applesauce. I am not an applesauce person AT ALL, but I will eat this by the gallons. Since then, I have tried to duplicate this recipe, for all I knew about it was it involved a crock pot or slow cooker. 

I know the basic ingredients are apples...obviously. Brown Sugar, lemon juice, water, and cinnamon. 
I usually triple this recipe because it is so easy to store in the fridge for a week or so. 
I usually use 10 apples and just use what we have in the house. This time, I was at B.J's and just picked up a bag of 10 Gala apples. Pell and core them. I don't get too picky about the skin because I like some skin in my applesauce, but its you're choice!

Throw them in the crock pot with a cup of water, a teaspoon of cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and 1 cup packed brown sugar. Let this cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 3-4 hours. 

When you're finished, it should look something like this: 
I know- It doesn't look very appetizing, but when it's fresh and warm- it's AMAZING. 
My mom and aunt like their apple sauce in chucks like this... so it's not really apple sauce.. 
I mash mine with a fork before I eat it and my aunt adds whipped cream. 

Hope you're enjoying the school year so far! Happy Baking :)
