-- Wash, peal, core, and slice a bunch of apples.
-- Put them in the crock pot with a cup or two of water.
-- -- The more water you put in, the thinner the sauce will be.
-- Turn the crock pot on high.
-- When the apples start getting soft, mash them with a potato masher.
-- -- Cook / mash to whatever texture you like... Smooth or chunky.
-- Add cinnamon and sugar to taste.
Be sure to use a mixture of sweet apples... Mixing varieties usually makes a better sauce.
When I make applesauce, I chop the apples and put them in a pot with a little butter, brown sugar and a tiny bit of apple juice. I cover with a lid and let them steam cook until soft and then smash them up. Season with a little cinnamon. A stick blender is a good tool to have for this. No, it probably isn't the correct way to make applesauce but it is still yummy and pretty easy.
