Slow Cooker Applesauce

This past week I've been using my crockpot everyday. My kids love applesauce and I had some apples from Pettingills left over still, so I made this yummy applesauce. Shayne has been loving having it for breakfast all week. Oh, and the house smelled delicious all day!

· 8 medium apples (Use a combination of Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp, Fuji, Gala, etc.)
· 1 strips of lemon peel - use a vegetable peeler
· 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
· 3 inch cinnamon stick
· 5 tsp light brown sugar (unpacked) - or agave
Directions:Peel, core, and slice the apples
Place them in the slow cooker. Add the cinnamon stick, lemon peel and brown sugar
Set crock pot to low and cook for 6 hours. Stir apples occasionally, apples will slowly become a delicious applesauce. Remove cinnamon stick and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth or if you prefer a chunky sauce, leave sauce intact
