This is one of my favorite things to prep and let simmer while I’m running around like a crazy person — not only because it smells amazing and makes the whole house smell like I’m Donna Reed-ing every day, all day, but because cause it pays off big with minimal effort.
First, get your hands on 6-8 medium apples – whatever kind you like, I use Gala or Empire. Peel and core them. This is the hardest part, swearsies.
1) Place peeled cored apples in the crock pot.
2) Add about 1/8 c. brown sugar sprinkled over top and 3 cinnamon sticks (fewer or ground will do)
3) Simmer on low for 6 or so hours.
You can blend to make smooth but I prefer to eat chunky over oatmeal, with vanilla ice cream, or just as a stand alone. It’s healthy, makes plenty, tastes more decadent than the ingredients would prove, and has a variety of uses. Is it just me or do you feel accomplished with something in the crock pot?
Enjoy! And share, please…

Would you believe I have never made applesauce. I guess my kids don’t really eat it, maybe if it was homemade they would.
