Tasty Tuesday: Applesauce in a Slow Cooker

We had way too many apples after our picking adventures!  We've made a ridiculous amount of apple-based goodies in the past week:  applesauce in a crockpot, applebutter in a crockpot, apple pie, apple crumble, and apple cake (thanks for all your great suggestions on Facebook)!  Plus, my husband peeled enough apples to freeze for 12 pies.  Poor guy.  I don't think he wants to see another apple for a while!

You need:
10-12 medium apples
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup apple juice or water
1/4 cup agave nectar or 1/2 cup sugar (if desired)

1)  Wash, core, and peel 10-12 apples.

2)  Cut peeled apples into chunks.  Place in crockpot.  Add juice/water (and sweetener if desired).  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Stir.  Cook on high for 3-4 hours. 

We like a chunky applesauce, so I used a potato masher to stir just a few times after cooking!  If you want a smooth texture, put through a blender or stir with a hand mixer.
