I have heard that home-made applesauce pretty much is the best thing ever. After my first try I couldn’t agree more! After polling some friends on FB and tweaking a recipe I found on Pinterest, I am happy to say this one is a keeper…
12 medium Macintosh apples
1 can cranberry sauce
3 Tbsp brown sugar
Dash of cinnamon
Peel, core, and slice apples. (My apple-peeler-corer slicer made me one happy lady!) Pop the apples, cranberry sauce, sugar, and cinnamon in a crock pot on low for 5 to six hours. It was a little thin, so I left the lid off the crock for the last 30 minutes or so. And that’s IT! I ran the applesauce through the blender but that is just our preference.
Hope you have a chance to enjoy something that tastes like fall!
