Home made applesauce!!
I have never made applesauce before...but after buying two 3# bags of Fuji apples at an unbelievable price of $4....i had to do something. 
We love apples...but not that many!! LOL!

I scanned Pinterest until i found an easy crockpot recipe....and when i say easy ...I MEAN Easy!!!

First....i washed all the apples:
Then i peeled them, cored them and cut them into thin slices.
After arranging them into the crockpot...i added these simple ingredients:

The juice of half a lemon..making sure to not get any seeds.

1 tblsp. of brown sugar

1 tsp. of cinnamon

1/4 c. of water....


Let this cook on low for at least 6 hrs....stirring occasionally.
The aroma is wonderful!! 
Open your windows a crack and make the neighbors jealous! 

When its the consistency you like...ladle it into mason jars. This will last up to 2 weeks in your fridge...or you can can it according to your favorite canning website. 

  Looks good...huh?!!  So good...the littles got to it before i could get a picture of it...those stinkers...but who can blame them!! 

They love to eat it plain, on toast, in their bowl of oatmeal, on yogurt or cottage cheese!! 
What an easy and delicious way to use those apples and feed your family good wholesome food without tons of sugar and preservatives!!
THese were organic apples...which is good because there are no pesticides, but that's not a necessity because you peel them!

I hope you get a chance to try this really is good.
Tomorrow morning i am trying my hand at making strawberry jam....

I bought a whole case of strawberries for only $2.99!!
 You have to love your local fruit market!!!

Until next time, 
God Bless!!
