Crock Pot Apple Sauce-Super Easy!

Every year we get excited for the beginning of fall because of apple season. We go out to our favorite local apple orchards and pick the best apples. We end up getting about a bushel of apples because they are fun to pick, eat, and cook with. If you come into our house anytime in the beginning of October, all you will smell is the delicious aroma of some sort of apple dish being cooked. Whether it's baked apples, apple pies, caramel apples, or one of our favorites- apple sauce. This recipe is sooo easy and so tasty. My husband says it almost tastes like apple pie.

Here is what you need:

- 4 pounds of apples, preferably NOT a really sweet apple. We like to use Connell red apples. They are good to eat plain but, also great to cook with. 4 pounds equals about 14 Med sized apples. Or 8 large apples.

- 1 cup of water

- 1/2 cup of sugar

- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

- 1 TBS of lemon juice

Wash, Peel, core, and slice the apple. Place into crock pot. Pour sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and water over apples. Cook in crock pot for 6 hours on low. It should pretty much soften itself. But, you may need to mash with a potato masher a couple times. Serve warm, or chilled. You can even can the apple sauce to eat later.
