    -- 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.
