Put away those fall smelling candles, potpourri, and plug ins. This recipe fills your home with the smells of fall naturally and tastes delicious after it's done! This weekend we spent some time picking apples off of our tree. With all of those apples, I knew I would make some cinnamon applesauce.
As it cooked throughout the day, my children would come in and out from the backyard and mention how good it smelled in our house. It was an easy recipe, but hard to wait to enjoy it!
We enjoyed our applesauce as an after dinner dessert. The kids added a dollop of cream with theirs and the warm applesauce was just perfect for a cool fall night!
For this recipe you will need: 8 apples peeled, cored and sliced. Place them in the crockpot
Place the apples in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. For chunky applesauce, blend half the apples in the food processor or blender and mash the other half of the apples with a masher. Mix the two together until well incorporated.
The applesauce will stay in a jar in the refrigerator for several days.
