I was really intimidated by peeling so many apples, but I invited a friend over, put the boys to work and made quick work of it. This applesauce is delicious and lasted me several days!
Recipe from increasinglydomestic.blogspot.com
After you pick (or buy) your apples you need to:
1. Wash them
2. Peel them
3. Core them
4. Slice them
5. Place them in a slow cooker
(Preferably while watching McDreamy and McWarVet on Hulu)
Set the slow cooker on low heat for 6-8 hours.
Add 1/2 cup water to start and add more later if it needs it.
Some people season later, but I like the seasonings to cook into my apples, so I add about a 1/4 cup of sugar(brown or granulated) and a heavy sprinkling of cinnamon.
After so many hours in the slow cooker I didn't even have to mash my apples! I stirred them and they fell to mush. Yummy mush.
