I had some apples left over from the bag my sister in law brought the other week. They needed to be used soon, so I thought I would try making Apple Sauce! I found a couple of recipes and here is my version:
8-10 small/medium apples
3T brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 cup water
(secret ingredient: a few dashes of Mace (this is our favorite spice, if you haven’t tried it, it goes well with anything cinnamon)
Directions: Peel, core & dice apples. Place them inside small crockpot (or larger if you double recipe).
Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the apples, and then pour the water on top.
Turn crock to Low for 4-5 hours. Mix occasionally (about 1Xhour). You will know it is done when it is light brown and there are no large lumps (you can use a potato masher if you don’t like any lumps). Spoon into canning jars and refrigerate. You can also freeze in freezer bags if you make a large batch. Mine only made one large and one medium canning jars (small batch in small crock pot).
This is SO easy! It will make your house smell AMAZING! Happy Autumn!
