Homemade apple sauce

Today I made apple sauce in the crockpot! This is probably going to be weird to many but this is one of those items I didn’t know you could make from home. I feel silly even saying it but I don’t think I have ever had homemade apple sauce….. Well until today.
I peeled then chopped up 5 ( I think) apples and a pear, put them in a crockpot and added a cup of water and sprinkled it heavily with cinnamon. I turned it on I think low ( the knob on my crock pot is broken) for about 3-4 hours and then took a little of the liquid out but I think you could leave it in. And mashed it up. As I write this it is cooling waiting to go in the fridge and we will have it with lunch tomorrow šŸ™‚
I must say even though I tasted it warm it was pretty good. I was skeptical to not put sweetener in but I am glad I didn’t it is sweet enough without. And that is saying a lot considering how much I enjoy sweet stuff.
So if you have extra apples that are close to going bad or would just love some homemade apple sauce give it a try! And if you do let me know what you think!
