A friend recently requested this recipe,in her words "the very best applesauce I have ever tasted" and I can't believe I didn't post this before, it is so easy and good! I got apples on sale last year for like .49/lb, I bought like 30 lbs, seriously, and made jars and jars of applesauce! (My friend Angel Gladden gave me the recipe).
7 lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (an apple-peeler-corer really helps here!)
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
(1/2 tsp cinnamon - add at end)
Toss in crockpot, cook on high 4 hours, mash up with a potato masher, add cinnamon, Enjoy!
