Homemade Applesauce

Yesterday was Johnny Appleseed day, so to celebrate my students and I did all things apple. I am sharing this amazing recipe for applesauce. It is super easy (aside from cutting the apples)- just dump it all in a crock pot! Enjoy!

12 large Granny Smith Apples (about 5 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Peel, core, and cut apples into 1 1/2 inch chunks. Toss with apple juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Put into a 5-quart slow cooker. Add butter. Cook on high for 4 hours. Stir until desired consistency. Makes 8 cups.
