Recipe: Slow Cooker Applesauce

I recently went apple picking with my family at Edwards Apple Orchard and oh my goodness did we come home with a lot of apples. Since we decided to go apple picking on a whim, I had not planned on baking so I had to jump to it, and fast so I have ripe apples to work with. My first thought was applesauce! I love making it and at this point I don't use a recipe, i just toss stuff in. Plus my kids eat a lot to it, so it was a no brainier. I did write down amounts I used this time so you could recreate it, because you guys, it's so super yummy! So much so, I ended up making two batches because it went so fast, I was even eating it daily.

1.) Wash apples, peel and core. Cut into fourths and put into a large bowl. Toss apples in lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, honey stirring to combine. Place in slow cooker. 

2.) Add water and place lid on slow cooker.  Cook on low for 6 hours, until apples are very soft. Use potato masher or rice press to get the desired consistency. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
