HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE

My family went to the apple orchard this past weekend and although we couldn't go (we're going soon for pumpkins though!), we still ended up with tons of apples.  Every fall my mom makes a batch of delicious homemade applesauce and it's since become a fall staple once September rolls around.


This year, I decided to make some of my own as a kick-off to what will surely be many more apple recipes to come.  It's really simple and only requires a few basic ingredients.  The added bonus is that it makes your home smell seriously amazing!


Ingredients:
  • 20 small naturally sweet apples (ex. Red Delicious, Gala, McIntosh)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 lemon slices
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
Directions:

1.  Peel and core apples then chop into bite-size pieces.
2.  Place apples, water, white sugar, brown sugar and lemon into a Crock-Pot and cook on low for about 4 hours.
3.  Top with cinnamon and serve warm.


If this doesn't welcome in fall, I don't know what does.  Bonus points if you pick the apples yourself.  Enjoy!
