    I just fill my crock pot most of the way with sliced apples, add about 2 cup of sugar (my crock pot is 5 qt), and cinnamon to taste, then cook on high until the apples are done and have fallen apart and turned to mush. I stir them about every hour or so. It takes several hours, but it's really easy and my family gobbles most of it up before I even have to worry about storing it!!!

    Edited to add that it makes the house smell wonderful!!!!!

    i core the apples (but the chickens like the seeds, so leave them in [​IMG] and just add enough water to cover them in a large pot. bring it to boiling, and then put them in the blender on a low/puree speed. i don't add sugar or flavoring for the chickens, but i suppose a little cinnamon and honey/molasses would be much appreciated.

    I peel, core and slice the apples, add an inch or two of water and cook. I use a 4 quart pot and fill it to the top with apple slices, stir with a wooden spoon. When almost done I add a cup of sugar or less. Depends on how sweet I want it. We like ours chunky for the dinner table. I also freeze the applesauce in rubbermaid containers for winter.
