Simple Crockpot Applesauce Recipe

I've been on a heathy cooking spree lately, now if there is one thing you should know about me is that I don't cook, my husband does most of the cooking at home. So this cooking spree has been a surprise to many around me. Most of the recipes have been coming from Skinytaste and the Eat Clean book and magazine.

Needless to say, my favorite recipes are those that involve the least amount of work which means I use my crockpot A LOT. This Skinnytaste inspired applesauce recipe is one of my favorites. Jack absolutely loves it and my house smells delicious for hours!

8 medium apples  - I used Golden Delicious
1 strip of lemon peel - I cut it in smaller pieces
1/2 fresh lemon
2 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
5 tsp light brown sugar (unpacked)

Peel, core and slice apples
Place apples in the slow cooker
Add cinnamon, lemon peel & juice and brown sugar
Set slow cooker to low and cook for 6 hours stirring occasionally

Jack likes his applesauce super chunky so I simply mash them lightly with a spoon but if you like a smoother consistency you can always use an immersion blender.
