Slow Cooker Applesauce

I wish I could call this a "recipe" with a straight face. The fact is it is SO easy to make your own applesauce. Shelby practically begs me to make it. She could eat the whole batch in 3 days. 

Between using the apple skins and using a potato ricer to mash, you get a nice chunky applesauce. It's a family favorite, and guess what?? No extra sugar.

Slow Cooker Applesauce

12 large apples

1. Section the apples discarding the cores.
2. Dump apples into slow cooker.
3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
4. Sprinkle with cinnamon, and mash apples with a potato ricer.

See? Nothing to it.
