Crockpot Applesauce

SERVES: 10 (1 CUP PER SERVING)
Ingredients:

20 medium apples (honey crisp, pink lady, or other variety, not too sour)

1¼ cup water

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions:

Peel, core, and slice the apples.

Place apples in a crockpot and pour the water over them. Sprinkle in the salt, cover, and set the timer to 6 hours on low heat.

When the timer goes off, stir in the lemon juice, vanilla, and cinnamon. Most of the apples should have broken down, but there may be a few smaller pieces remaining. If you prefer smooth applesauce, blend with an immersion blender, or ladle the mixture into a blender to purée until it reaches the desired consistency.

Serve immediately, store in the refrigerator, or freeze until ready to eat.
